Be sure to thoroughly mangle it (the platters) before getting rid of it. I usually use a 20-pound sledge hammer.

it only had my steam installation cache on it so not worth doing that too, I am going to mail it to Seagate for them to dispose of it

For me a few blows and it's demolished!

Pretty cheap method of destruction.....unless you have to buy a sledge hammer.... Postage costs money......

No cost involved here. It was my Grandpa's sledge, then my Dad's, now mine. It might be a bit ugly but, it still has the same destructive power as when it was new. Destroying a hard drive with a few blows myself has no impact on the environment, helps vent frustrations and it's great exercise as well.

Easier and less stressful to take a large old magnet and run it around the drive a bit, that will turn it into "toast". I wouldn't take free Seagate drives except to sell on eBay, they are as bad as Toshiba and Samsung now.

Might come in handy to store copies of backups ... just in case.

Upgrade my NAS from 2tb raid 1 to 6tb Raid 1

Keep / Sell remaining two drives

Why not start using ssd drives they last twice as long and the prices are getting to be almost the same now. Use a 256 for Os and programs and hdd for files and date and that way even the Seagates and Toshibas will last forever as long as they don't have to boot to Windows.
I have a small server with 4 Ssd drives and I can't even tell it is on as the only fan in it is hsf....

Sounds like fun! I'm with you on "what to do with all of that free space"? Wow.

get lots of spyware?

Do you think a 6tb Raided C: is overkill? or should I have it as C: 6tb and D:6tb
(or go the whole hog and have C D E F G H each at 6tb?) joke btw

Raid 10 (1+0) - If something goes wrong with one of the disks in a RAID 10 configuration, the rebuild time is very fast since all that is needed is copying all the data from the surviving mirror to a new drive. This can take as little as 30 minutes for drives of 1 TB.
