GeneralRetired Hard Drive stacks Pin

I've been cleaning up my work area but one thing that I never seem to get a handle on is the pile of old hard drives. And I'm guessing that many of our crowd have the same issue.

The thing is that whenever I get a new computer and get rid of an old one I pull the hard drive. The plan of copying out important stuff (really?) before I wipe the drive. That's the plan, but the reality is that I don't quite let go. Did I get everything I need? Why not check one more time later...
and the drive joins the other drives somewhere in a closet.

How many retired hard drives have I accumulated? About a dozen. Occasionally I actually finish and get rid of some. Or more truthfully a small EMP event confined to my closet and storage might actually be a good thing for me and save me some wasted time and space.
Do others in this group have similar behavioral issues like this?
