Ok, you guys - I retrieved the hard drive and after much battering, prising apart and cursing (good job the neighbours were out!) I managed to rip it open.

Photo taken at the scene of the 'crime' (along with 'murder' weapons  :P)  - what do I do now?  ???

You seem to have borrowed my hammer and screwdiver ;D ;D, give the round grey bits a whack.

Since it was manufactured in a clean room and any particle greater than 5 microns will cause a head crash I think it is done for already but best to be on the safe side.

I don't think I fancy 'fried' circuits.........!    ;D

Thank you all, for your help - a few more smashes with a hammer and then I'm done!

Bury it under a car park in Leicester. They'll never find it.

The pathology report has been received from the lab. The victim has been positively identified as Mr Max Tor.
A hard fella, well known for memorising a lot of useful facts - known to the mob as "Data".
