The smashed hard drive is set to head to the Salisbury Museum as part of a new exhibit on Pratchett.

Before his death, fantasy novelist Terry Pratchett had asked that his unfinished work "be put in the middle of a road... for a steamroller to steamroll over them all".
As evidence, he also shared two pictures of a computer hard drive: one intact and another showing it in pieces. His last novel was published in 2014.More news: United States approves first gene therapy treatment
The museum's curator Richard Henry told BBC: "It's really nice that they have followed his requests so specifically".
The flattening took place at the end of the Great Dorset Steam Fair this week (Monday August 28th).
The remnants of the hard drive will be displayed at an exhibition dedicated to Pratchett's life, which will run from September 16, 2017 to January 13, 2018.More news: US GDP Growth Revised Up to 3.0% Pace in the Second Quarter
Pratchett obviously understood the importance of letting unfinished works remain unfinished, and from the sound of it, he believed it so much that he really wanted to use a steamroller to take care of those remnants, smashing them beyond almost all recognition.
