Depends on the situation which I won't get into on a public archive. I 
was bringing it up as something that surprisingly enough most don't seem 
to think of when getting warm fuzzies for doing good for someone else, 
especially when the recycled system is equated with free and new hard 
drives are not free and really new drives may not work on old hardware 
from BIOS limitations.
