Don't count on that.  Many companies, and all branches of government
destroy hard drives pulled from retired systems.  In systems like
NetServers, SGIs, and some Suns, the trays pull out so easily, that
they're destroyed along with the drives because the company doesn't see
the value in a piece of plastic pulled from an "antiquated" system.
