Floppy disk erasing
How to nuke a floppy diskThe little thing on the floppy disk is a ultra strong magnet
which can hold 1 kg! I wanted to know how much data it could
destroy. I moved the magnet in circles on the disk case not
touching the disk inside.
And the result: the disk couldn't be mounted anymore.
I tried to recover data with ddrescue:
tux:/home/stefan# ddrescue /dev/fd0 boot_and_nuke_magnet.img Press Ctrl-C to interrupt rescued: 0 B, errsize: 4096 B, current rate: 0 B/s ipos: 3584 B, errors: 8, average rate: 0 B/s opos: 3584 B
So all data was gone. And i tried to format the disk and
it failed too!.
Yes, I nuked the darik's boot and nuke disk! ;)
