I wonder if drivesavers would take them off your hands. They do data recovery and parts are always in demand.

Here's what I do, provided you have a local salvage metal/junk yard in your area. Using the proper tools, I tear down the HDs totally apart and/or at least dissembled to the basics. Keep the discs themselves and use as bird or garden scare devices or toss in scrap as well. Most of the metal is alum., thrown into 5gal. bucket and goto the junk yard and get a few $. Ferrous metal are tossed into soup can and that too is sold for scrap. Depending on your haul you get a few $ for gas. -----Willy Happy
