    Seagate 1tb external hard drive
    « on: July 28, 2010, 05:10:25 PM »
    I need to open up the case of a Seagate 1tb external hard drive to access the drives that were damaged when someone plugged in the wrong power supply.  The person has a new one but really needs the data off this one, does anyone know how to open up the case?

    These Seagates are not designed to be user-opened. The case is glued and you will need to destroy it. Anyhow, if the electronics are damaged by incorrect voltage or polarity you will probably find a dead drive in there.
