I have a question regarding an Asus laptop of mine that suffered damage due to a spill and has not worked since.
I am wondering:
- if there is any chance the hard drive might still be viable so I could use it in my PC as extra space?
- if it is totally shot, how should I best destroy the information on it before discarding it in order to protect any important information which may have been saved therein?
This was not a high dollar laptop so I am not interested in spending a lot to repair it. I just want to be sure my private information is safe.
