Since I couldn't get it to interface with my computer to get my data back, the next step was to make sure there were no traces of the data on the platters before I tossed it in the trash. I figured I'd have my wife record me demonstrating for any of you that may also have this problem.
Another reason to just shoot!
Shooter used a lot of ammo to figure out the target rounds did more short range damage.
You could just take a drill to the platters but that would not be as much fun as wasting some ammo. Look at the wife's flower pot, got some good drainage now.
