Lincoln Computers in Clinton sponsored a one-day hard-drive smash event this week.

Computer owners brought in their old machines to have the hard drive removed and crushed for free.

Employee Jason Kalk deftly removed the hard drive from each computer and handed it to owner Scott Lincoln, who used his hydraulic wood splitter to crush it, making it impossible to retrieve any data inside.

“It’s a foolproof way to dispose of the data on an old computer,” Lincoln said.

The four-hour event netted a trailer full of computer bodies, minus the hard drives, which became garbage.
