    | I HAVE come across a shredder that could also do hard disks, but it was

    | Of course, if you REALLY want to destroy a hard disk with all the data
    | on it, thermite is your agent of choice - much more fun than a
    | shredder, and you won't get any data back from the lump of
    | iron-with-assorted-other- metals that is left over after the fire is
    | out :-)
