Protect Your Hard Drive Secrets With a Simple Sticker
July 14th, 2011
While I don’t think that hackers need any info on how to destroy their data in case of an FBI raid, other people might need a helping hand. Here’s the easiest way to destroy your hard drive, in case of an emergency. FYI, you’d best keep a drill handy.
Just like in the movies, the “safest” way of disposing of a hard drive would be a strong electromagnet or some white phosphorous explosives. Since most of us don’t have easy access to either of these, I guess this sticker do quite nicely.
You can find the pattern to print out right here. Randy Sarafan recommends that you check the appropriate iFixt teardown to locate the exact position of your laptop’s hard drive before applying your sticker.
