I’ve been reading the recent thread about how to securely wipe data from a hard drive. I have an old hard drive sitting on my desk gathering dust, and I was thinking I should wipe it, just to be sure. Then I took a better look at the sticker on top. This thing is only 1.1 GB! I have a flash drive with more memory than that! My mp3 player has more memory, too. Why am I even bothering with this old drive?
So I turn to the ever brilliant and creative Dopers. What should I do with an old, uselessly small hard drive?
