    Re: Wiping hard drive for resale.

    If I were actually going to put the HDDs in the trash, I would just drill a hole through it, and remove the controller board, and drop that in e-waste.

    Re: Wiping hard drive for resale.

    Well today having some spare drives came in handy, lost another SSD boot drive, this in the computer that runs a 40" display in front of my elliptical. 2nd SSD in as many months, granted, they both were 7 & 8 yr.s old but....

    Machine back in service with a 7200 RPM spinner, a little slower boot time but "oh well".
