How to remove hard drive?

Text:

I don’t have the manual anymore for this computer, but we went with a new pc and I need to make sure our banking data, etc. is gone for good on this old Mac.  I unscrewed a plate at the bottom of the unit that had 3 screws in it and all I can see is 2 thin plastic tabs that can be pulled out, but when you pull on them, nothing is moving.  Can this be done?  I don’t see anywhere else on the body of this where I can open anything.  Thanks for any help.
