You remove the foot/stand unit, then the silver cover with the circular rubber ring can be carefully pried off. If you do this, you'll void the warranty, so if you want to do this because your unit is dead, then you should return it for a warranty repair. If you're doing this to put a larger capacity drive in the box, be aware that larger or faster hard drives might generate more heat which could adversely affect the new drive's ability to operate properly.

Drivers are not needed for this Ext HDD.
If you go to your Computer Management>Storage Devices,you will have to assign a Drive letter for it to show in your "My Computer" as a External Hard Drive.
Also ensure that drive is set as "slave" and do not connect until computer is booted to Desktop.
All changes will take effect after reboot.

Secure drive is to KeyErase it. This will erase ALL of your files and allow you to reset your
Once you KeyErase your Seagate Secure drive, there is no way to recover your files (even by
using a data recovery service). Only do this as a last resort!
The one other thing you may try is to copy the folder if you can get to it, someplace else on another drive and go to properties and see if you can change the ownership of the folder and gain access.
Otherwise, keep trying to remember.
