Part 1 - Use a strong magnet

We will need a strong magnet. This is made of neodymium, grade N52.

The magnet is 20mm x 25mm. It is very strong. Very.

Part 2 - Take it apart

Break apart the casing

Part 3 - Wipe the tape

The magnet is so strong the thin tape with a thin magnetic layer sticks to it .... let's wipe the tape clean

Part 4 - A lot of tape

There is a hell of a lot of tape ... what to do with it?

Part 5 - Burn the tape

Burn the tape in an all consuming fire

Even the US National Security Agency (NSA) could not get data from this tape ..... (I hope)
