Default Free ATA/IDE and SATA drives

I'm thinning my stock of drives and I have an assortment of IDE and SATA drives. They are all 250GB and smaller. They have been tested and formatted and can be yours if you need them. Free! Let me know.

If nobody has taken them, you can always disassemble them and harvest the neodymium magnets inside them.
They're usually rather strong and can be very useful if applied properly.

I can't use the IDE, but if the SATA drives are 3.5" I could use them to load up LINUX or Chrome OS for people to try. I think 90% of the people in the Villages that have a Windows PC, don't need all the power of Windows. LINUX is easy to use without all the problems of Windows.
