Have a hard drive you need destroyed for good and happen to be in Japan? Then head on over to Dark Past Final Disposal Site located in the Akihabara district. This store uses a Nitto Zoki DB-60PRO machine that absolutely obliterates hard drives, and for a 100-yen ($.79 USD) fee, they can do it for you at the push of a button.
Sure, you could always take a hammer to a hard drive, but for a safer alternative, stick with this store. Why does it only cost $.79 per hard drive? Well, the owner of Dark Past Final Disposal Site says that he isn’t out to make a quick buck, but rather help people dispose of their hard drives in a safe and somewhat eco-friendly manner. The store can also help destroy SSDs in addition to standard hard drives.
