First the drive cover plate was removed to expose the platters. Drill right next to the drive arm to help wedge the platters so they don't spin on you. Make sure you secure the drive as they will tend to start flying around if not.
We are using a craftsman 1/2" 19.2v cordless drill and a cobalt 1/2" drill bit to ensure data destruction. We are drilling clear through the aluminum platters in the drive.These drive will be then sent to an e-waste company for environmentally safe disposal and recycling.
The purpose of physical drive destruction after wiping is to ensure the drive data will be irrecoverable. For extra precaution it is recommended to drill through the platters in at least 3 places.
