I am an accountant. We are disposing of our old computer equipment and we need to erase the hard drives on this equipment. Can you give me step by step instructions on how to do this?

There are many tools of a different kind that allow you to do wiping. For example, the EaseUS Partition Master is an efficient tool and so is the DBAN program, which will run at the time of boot and can irrecoverably destroy all data.

But if you mean destroying data physically, then that's another thing. There are a number of guides to destroy hard drives. The most common way is unscrewing the screws, reaching the main circuit board, hammer it out, and get the magnetic platter out (the magnetic disc). This disc needs to be destroyed properly. I have experience of seeing people melting some magnetic discs. Well, you don't need to go that extreme. Hammering this platter will make sure it cannot be read ever again in its life. Recycling whatever's left is a very good thing to do afterward.

Some design is good, some design is bad, and yet some design is just full retard Comic Sans with a rainbow gradient on it.
