I had a Seagate drive go bad a few months ago,i had some tax info on
the drive..I e-mailed them and asked what happened to a drive when it is
They told me the first thing they do is a low level format. If the
drive won't spin then the drive is stripped down and the platters are
removed to be used in refurbish drives..
I destroyed the drive myself.. I don't need my SS# out in public...
