Rand Paul puts Hillary Clinton's hard drive on sale

Dave 62


I might give this a shot if it goes at a reasonable price, I spent my weekend trying to repair a failed a decade ago Deskstar by swapping the heads with a good drive (I now have two dead drives), clearly I need more practice so this could be another project drive for me.

But the listing doesn't say what's wrong with it, no symptoms like "BIOS gives error code 11" or "Drive makes ATAPI noise" so not sure if it's worth a punt.
