Re: what does the harddrive look like? I want to take
The harddisk is more than likely in a "cage-like" enclosure at the front of your PC. It will look rectangular and have dimensions of approximately 5.75 in × 1.63 in × 8 in and have a yellow,red & black power cable along with a data cable, which can look like a gray "ribbon" cable with a red stripe on one side (Parallel ATA drive) or a thinner solid red cable with a small black connector (Serial ATA drive)

Government isn't really destroying money but they do recycle old note printed long ago and pump into the economy newly printed not.
Hence,Government has regulatory body that determine the value of a currency,the stock exchange is a good example
Basically all you have to do is go to the storage drive, have a look through it, decide what you don't want and drag the ones you don't want to the recycle bin, that will clear space for you. Also empty the recycle by right clicking on it then select empty recycle bin.

You cannot fix a broken harddrive by yourself. You can access the enternal parts, however you will destroy any files you have stored in there if you do this. The enternal part are "Extremly" sensitive and any shock, static, finger prints, oil, liquid or dust will simply destroy it. However I do have a suggestion, take it to Best Buy, Office Depot, and they can do a File recovery. They will send your harddrive to a Lab, where professional technician in dust free enviroment with suits on will "try" to perform if they can recover your files. It is Costly, and however not promising. If they do, they will charge you costly. I done this, it cost me over 400.oo us just to get 24mb of files, only because it was picture's that was priceless that I did this.
this sometimes happens when you delete files partially. Deleting file normally will send it to the Trash (MAC) or Recycle Bin (PC) . The file is not really deleted at that point. Make sure to empty the Trash or Recycle Bin and the space should be freed.
If this does not work, copy all needed files somewhere else, then format the drive.
Please follow the following for recycling your system.
1.) grab your windows disc and 1/2 run the install 2.) once at the screen were you can format your hard drive do so 3.) find local electronics drop off center or contact LIve-Tech

If you look at the motherboard you should see a plastic strip with black squares on it sticking up from the motherboard about 4 inches long. Often in older models the memory cards were at a slant. Either way there are 2-4 slots populated with 1 to 4 of these green plastic strips. Just pop them out. They may have little clips on each end that you have to depress to get them out of the slots. Hope this helps.
What I would do is take a screw driver a very small phillips, You can take it apart and remove the disks and destroy and break disks there just like a cd rom and then you can send the rest or it to be recycle at your nearest recycling plant that takes care of computer components. You can just put it back together and recycle it Please don't just throw it in the garbage, Toshiba has a place if you call the 800 number you can send the hole drive and they will destroy it for you, If you want to do that too. I would trust them that they would do so. I am sure if anything happened after that they would be responsible for it... I hope that helps you out...
