Step 2: Firstly you will need a hard drive.
For those who don't live in australia there might be a similar thing in your area or freecycle.org is always helpful.
When you get a DESKTOP (only) computer it is pretty straight forward in taking off the case and unscrewing to get out the hard drive. My trusty set of screwdrivers worked well for this purpose.
Sorry, forgot to take pics of me taking out of the computer.
Step 3: My trusty screwdriver set...
It has a bit of a story to it.
Skip to the next paragraph if you don't want to hear my ramblings...
Along time ago I went to bunnings to find a cheap bargain... I do that often! I talked to my friend, the forensic expert, and he got out this set of philips heads, the straight heads, torx heads and some other type of heads.
It cost me $6... Good deals at bunnings.
Well anyway you will most likely need a torx set of screwdrivers as well as philips heads.
Torx screwdrivers are used for taking apart the insides of computers... Not the computers themselves but hard drives etc.
Don' freak out if you don't need a set and you have bought one. I can guarantee that if you take apart 4 hard drives at least one of them will need torx screwdriers.
Step 4: Starting work on the hard drive.
Undo all of the screws that you see and take the cover off.
