Most if not all hard drives include a couple of extremely powerful permanent 
magnets, and of course a coil on the actuator. I haven't seen it happen, but I 
presume that the permanent magnets are capable of partially erasing the near 
section of the platters over time. I'd be very surprised if they didn't.
