Hi Carol,

A lump hammer is the best, and cheapest, solution here.

Subject: [access-uk] REPLACEMENT EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE - ABOUT
150 GIG

Hi,

I have an external Maxtor hard drive, now about six years
old, which has 
been well used etc. and has now failed so badly that I don't
even dare to 
try to reformat to re-use anyway.

First, can anyone advise how I reformat it (or remove all
its contents 
securely) because when I tried to reformat (really to remove
contents) I was 
told it could not be formatted.  I want to be sure to
destroy all its 
contents once and for all!

Second, has anyone purchased an external hard drive recently
and what would 
you recommend?

Thanks, as always, for any input.
