    Wave a reasonably powerful magnet all over the floppy disk. It should delete or damage your data while leaving the disk fully intact. Also, as per your request, it will look exactly the same as a normal, viable disk.

    Well, the Microwave causes everything to cook/burst into flames/ or explode. The microwave radiation acts as an Electro-Magnetic Pulse, frying anything electronic, burning/cooking anything organic, and making anything metal burst into flames. It is being experimented on by the US Military to make a APC with a microwave dish that frys the enemies electronics, so far it is useless.

    Use the magnet. If that doesnt work, tamper with the silver shifty thing. Keep moving it up and down and then put it into the disk drive and keep doing it until your PC cant read it XDD

    If you need to erase data just format it from your computer and that will be more simple solution !

    Cut it open at the top, and rip the plastic thingy out. Yeah the thingy! :mad

    Make it a small, discreet cut.

    Just trying to offer an alternative.
