comment Can a hard drive be destroyed by drowning?
+1 For mentioning (the fun) ways in which one could destroy a hard drive in respect to OP's quesion. I know a single 7.62x54 round can make through at least 3 hard drives stacked together for efficiency.

comment How can I punish a hacker?
Is there such thing as "Digital Trespassing"? Although the OP doesn't make mention of it, I think one could to surmise that the OP took reasonable steps to harden his server if it took "hacking" to get in. I don't see this as any different from somebody breaking into your home to read your newspaper and made a copy of the key to the back porch. Would law enforcement take the same indifference in that case?
