Take a cruise to the Bahamas. Or somewhere. Throw the damn things overboard. (Then, go get other Margarita.)

Quite seriously, your problem is now solved.

If you seriously regret whatever-it-is that you stored upon a disk drive, the best thing to do is to (wipe it somehow and then ...) consign it to a place where it will never be found. (Then, clever soul that you are, "have a drink.")

Note: If what you have is really so dammed important that the CIA launches another Glomar Challenger mission to recover it, be sure to get yourself a piece of the movie.

The 'jaws' are not electrified. But, when magnetized metal bends(ie: platters), the data becomes VERY problematic to recover. If its possible at all.
