You only have to ensure that the platters do not spin to completely destroy a hard disk drive. Either by hammering on the hard disk, dismantling it, or sanding down the platters, and jab openings in between platters. You can also pound nails or crush it into pieces, or use a sledge and crush it into small pieces. If the platters can no more spin, you’ve done quite a good job.
