Donate it to someone that does not need to use notepad.

binary data is binary data, no matter where it's stored:

so, convert it to a simple backup storage server
on a wired LAN, and use XCOPY to do manual backups
from a .bat batch file e.g.:

D:\> XCOPY foldername X:\foldername /s/e/v/d

D: is a data partition on the local system
X: is a remote partition on the backup server

That's what we do with our aging 875 chipsets:
we also turn them OFF when not in use,
which prolongs their useful life even more.

HINT: systems that are powered OFF completely
are totally immune to viruses and malware infections :)

it barely can run notepad... :kaola:  <<<LOL

if you want something creative:

1. Strip it to bits! and make things with it, like I used shuttle XPS CPU cooler as book stand when my PC shorted.

2. Or reformate it and donate it like rolli59 said.

3.Or Blow it up and upload a video...
