Huh?

Have you ever seen an industrial shredder? Have you seen the resultant pieces?

Maybe *you're* the one that doesn't understand.

No, Sebastian has it right in this case. You can get a lot of damaging
information from the bits left over.

I've seen the results of industrially shredded CDs.

(Not a paper shredder that you'd find in a home, but an *industrial* shredder.)

The result is *tiny* pieces of CDs, many of which have delaminated.

You're also talking about *totally* out-of-context bits of information.

If this wasn't *enough*, you could always heat the pieces, reluting in a molten
pile of non-recoverable data.
