Best Way to Destroy a Hard Drive

by Paul Strauss

If you’re concerned that someone might find your corporate secrets (or your nasty web surfing habits) on your used computer’s hard drive, check this out. The appropriately named BREAKS-EASY is a device designed to ensure that nobody can find the skeletons in your closet.

BREAKS EASY Hard Disk Destroyer

Much like those can crushers you use to recycle cans, the BREAKS-EASY is designed to crush any hard drive into smithereens. If you happen to have a lot of drives to destroy (or have limited upper-arm strength), you might want to check out one of Orient Instrument’s high-powered automatic hard disk crushers.

While I personally think a sledgehammer or a large magnet does the trick, this seems like it might be a little more fun.
