    Here's the article, which is a first hand account of an FBI raid of a site that specialized in modding xboxes. For those of you too lazy to read it, here's a summary.

    A member of the xbox modding scene known as FallsInc, was arrested as a part of a large FBI raid on modding stores across the nation. He had his modding tools and electronic equipment confiscated as part of the investigation and is currently awaiting trial.

    This could be the first step in what may soon be a siege on homebrew communities. They're doing this to counter piracy, and although homebrew is not (or shouldn't be) counted as such, it does have a strong affiliation with it. I can only wonder if our community could be next, and considering Sony's efforts to stop homebrew, I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to pull something on us. I'm not telling you guys to wipe your hard drives clean of porn, ISOs, pirated movies and mp3s, but if this stuff gets too close to me I'm going to deny that I even had a computer. Paranoia ftw.

    Even if you delete those files on your computer, Empty you recycle bin. They can still recover it.

    Nope that won't work THE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF THE FILE ON A HARD DRIVE IS TO DRILL HOLES IN IT. That's the only way. they can get file off a smashed hard drive. There's disk plates in a hard drive that are like steal. All the files you had on your hard drive are still there.....

    Thoretically I guess. Then you could just reformat it and it would still be usable

    ROFL No you mite have a fire in the kitchen No metel in microwave??? You made my day with that one......and if you just reformat it the files are under what you just rewrote ( A hard drive has layers like a RW disk.when you write something to it its on there forever it just add another layer you can have 7 8 layers of format that would make it harder for them..................

    Yea it just goes on another partition. My hard drive is a 60 gb hard drive but Windows only recognizes it as a 54.4 gb. The other 6gb is for stuff that's been "deleted".

    No ALUMINUM in the microwave. I think most hard drives are made of steel.
