My concern is the disposal of a replaced disk from a private RAID5 disk array.
I have had to replace a disk from my personal RAID5 disk-array. It had started developing errors, so out it went.
But now, I have this disk lying on my desk and that got me wondering... The data on the array was never encrypted. I'm concerned that turning it in at the recycle-station could be a security-risk.
Is it possible that some mischievous individual would be able to retrieve personal data (photo's, files etc.) from the disk? Or is the fact that it was part of a RAID5 array sufficient for the data to have been scrambled beyond recognition?
