Your data is safer than you think

In a story at once grotesque and astonishing, it turns out that one of the hard drives on the _Columbia_ shuttle which blew up with the loss of the whole crew in 2003 has been treated by a data recovery firm who got 90% of the data off it — after it had been blown up and then dropped two miles. Don’t miss the picture. (via)

    That’s a specialised meaning of “safe” isn’t it? If the government can read 90% of the data on your disc?
