    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    interesting idea but might introduce dust into the chamber and cause damage to the disks

    The moment you open the HDD, dust gets in, you can be prepared for bad sectors to appear real soon

    Hahhahaha.. is this a joke or what???

    I worked in a HDD assembly line before. It is a Cleanroom(Class 1000).
    Even if he was in a Cleanroom, the tools he used, especially that hammer, are not appropriate.

    I think it is might for a BIG TIME JOKE!!
    Hope no one follow it.

    Smile I agree !

    It will definately be free of noise; free of any usefull data also

    To save time and get the same effect; try drilling a 1/8th hole in the top cover (not in the bottom as the data will leak out). Pour in 47ml of machine oil and plug the wole with wax.......
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Better idea, use a ear-plug, cheap & neat!

    Pablo, I like your idea ... and to prevent data leakage, just got to make sure the data chunks are larger than 1/8 in size, right ?

    A better alternative to machine oil could be WD-40 ...
