Hi everyone :) I've found an old Seagate Medalist 10232 Internal hard drive (10.2GB) when clearing out the garage. Just wondering if it's worth keeping/selling or if it's worthless and can be binned.

Cheers for the help!

Best guess = ugly paperweight, unless someone is trying to get a really old computer going.

Aaaand i've just come across a Western Digital WD200 20GB 5400RPM Enhanced IDE hard drive as well. Any input on that would be greatly appreciated too!!

Cheers :)

They are well obsolete at this point, I will be surprised if they still work.  Take them apart for the magnets :)

They might be collectible for people who have vintage PCs.

At the least, take it to a scrappie. You will get some coin and the metal will be re-used.
