Burn DBAN to a CD. Since DBAN is an ISO file, you will need to use burning software that can burn ISO files (also known as CD images). Simply burning the file onto a CD in the ordinary way is not sufficient. If you don't see the "ISOLINUX" folder on the burned CD, it won't work and your hard drive will not be erased.

Boot from the CD. Leave the CD in while you restart the computer you are erasing the hard drive with. If it doesn't boot up from the CD automatically, you will need to adjust the boot order in the BIOS. On an Apple Mac, you may need to hold down the "C" key while the computer starts up

Delete the data. You will need to select the disk to delete the data from (make sure it is the right one because you can't recover the data after it has been destroyed). You can choose how many times you want it to be overwritten and deleted. The default, 3-pass overwrite is far more than needed. Overwriting with "one pass of random data" is sufficient to prevent any recovery of data.

Physical destruction is a good option for an archaic drive for which you don't have the necessary interface on a computer to connect it to, or if the drive will not reliably boot for you to run a software-based erase. It is also for those who want their data to be unrecoverable even under forensic analysis by governments.

Unscrew all the screws holding the top on. You will need the T-9 sized wrench for most hard drives. Sometimes there's an air seal. You will need to remove this.

Destroy the platters. Once you get the top off you will see two or three stacked, silver disks (called platters). Put scratches on the surface of the platters with the Torx wrench. Now start smashing it with the hammer. Do this outside on a hard surface (such as concrete). Glass platters (found on newer drives) will shatter.
