your computer will get seized in 24 hrs. you know this beforehand. what do you do in that amount of time to save your ass?
hard mode:you cant destroy your harddisk physically
This is one of those bait threads we have every few months where you want someone to say to wipe the hard drive using some form of a zero pass or a random pass, then insisting you "know a guy" or "know a governmental agency" that can somehow recover the data loss using magic hard drive dust
My meme and document folder are in separate memory sticks
I only keep music files in my HDD. I don't keep stolen movies/other media contents.
Come to think of it I can't remember when was the last time I watched a movie in my PC.
> 24 hours
lol is this easy mode? plenty of time to format and fill HD with kitten pictures.
>Don't watch movies
Wow I really sound weird, don't I?
I got nothing remotely illegal besides ~200GB of pirated movies.
And I have full disk encryption
If I lived in the land of the free I would probably have to go as far as writing zeroes to the drive.
But because I don't and piracy for "personal use" is perfectly legal I could literally hand it to them and even provide the password if they forced me (which they can't)
>eastern european shithole?
Not him but you're deluded if you think western europe is in any way better.
2 years ago my buddy and I were in belgium.
In brussels he had his phone stolen by some muzzie piece of shit.
We went to the police in the FUCKING capital city of this country.
And after a long time we had to go to the Chief Officer's computer because NONE of the "regular" computer were recent enough to have a fucking USB port.
And the chief officer's PC was running XP.

No, I can afford internet
Put a post-it note on it.
"Will only release the encryption key if you clone the drive and return it promptly. A blank the same size as the original is in the cupboard marked 'supplies' if required."
a computer with a missing harddrive raises further questions
have a 100% clean backup harddrive that you can slap into your PC, thus allowing you to hide the "dirty" one without raising suspicion.
How does the resolution of the stream play any matter in that regard?
Do you even have any fucking clue what you're talking about?
Or are you just shilling your pleb consumer garbage you love so much?
>do a few overwrites with zero and random data alternating on hdd and ssd
>destroy the ssd because I don't trust the ATA secure erase
>destroy the hdd
>destroy microsd card
speaking of SSDs, how would you go about getting rid of the data, especially when only technical means may be employed (imagine you cannot physically touch the drive)
Well then I'll just have to destroy it spiritually!
I watch porn and fap, nothing illegal is on my computer. When they break down my door I stare them down, look those swat fuckers in the eyes while I jack it and ask why they are here.
> Unplug computer

> Run to the nearest scrap yard
> Throw Computer in scrap yard
Seriously, easy. Just buy an overpowered magnet and repeatedly run it over the hard drive.
Even then though, can be reformatted and even repaired.
Fuck it. Poor oil over my computer, throw it outside, make a homemade flamethrower and kill the useless cunt.
>tfw 1000 cease & desist emails from Comcast for copyright infringement
>implying any police force in Latin America cares about me downloading David Bowie albums off the Pirate Bay
failing to understand the constraints by suggesting physical destruction (including magnets, microwaving, etc...) doesn't make you look clever. it makes you look like a retard.
we all know about these approaches. the thought experiment was supposed to be about destroying data without doing these things.
Same law, but the fucking Jew is pushing my corrupted government to change the law to a much harsher one, that is the government is allowed to sue any one who used (no matter down/upload, or even showing one in a forum) copyrighted material, no matter the copyright holder wants to sue the user or not.
Load Acronis True Image
/dev/random my VMs (it can securely erase exact files I need it to)
Pull out disks and take it to my friend, except a system SSD - not giving away my porn, animu and warez.
