If your computer is dead and you are looking to junk the whole thing or if you just have a bad hard drive you need to do something with your old hard drive. throwing it away is not as good of an option as recycling it but before you recycle it you need to remove it from the computer and disable it so no one can get your information off of it. Everyone has Social Security numbers and credit card numbers and other sensitive information on their hard drives that can be retrieved in other countries or even in your own country from people just fishing in your garbage pulling out hard drives. this video details how to go about making your data secure even when it is out of your hands by allowing you to disable your hard drive.
