So I'm super anal about disposal of ALL information that I no longer need and I'm just wondering if any of you have any tricks aside from big ass magnets or a disc smashing session. I've got around 200 discs I need to wipe and I'd rather not destroy one at a time Thanks
Get yourself a decent shredder. Most have a slot specifically for discs. I know you don't want to do it one at a time, but that's the only efficient way. If you don't mind cancer, you could set them on fire. Perhaps find a spindle, set them in there and turn it side ways, then with a hammer, have at it.
I am kind of curious how you have so many discs. Perhaps you should invest in a flash drive for all of $20 and get TrueCrypt (free) to encrypt it. I carry one on my key ring. I haven't had to burn a disc in almost 2 years.
Put them in the bin, then garbage men come and collect it and dump it all in a landfill never to be seen again. What? You think someone's gonna take random discs from the trash and try to see what is on them or something? Come on now..
You would be surprised, lots of identities get stolen through garbage.
