    Even on most old copiers without hard drives you can pull negative images off of a film roll in the toner drum.

    Most old copy machines are sold overseas where they are broken down. Although I don't know, I'd bet the contents of some HDs were read by some not the ones from the public library. ;)

    A Silicon Graphics (Unix workstations) field serviceman told me that a Military sites, any and all HDs are put in a device similar looking to a large microwave with no glass in the door. The box had thick walls; a few inches thick. Under the service contract, bad components are swapped for a replacement. Here, they zapped the drive before he could take it. He said out of curiosity at the office they tried to read the drive and the info on it was totally gone. He said firmware chips were hosed also.
