Question about Seagate Computers & Internet
This is from another site, but I think it has a good description
Be careful, some people report that taking these drives apart may damage the connectors, that are soldered to a circuit board inside the case.
Try these steps, I looked at my own drive and it looks like it has the same design as the one described here.
1. Remove the rubber feet
2. remove the screws from where the rubber feet were.
3. Remove the esata/usb base
4. remove the lower plastic cover
5. remove the tiny screws
6. remove the metal shield
7. remove the 3 base screws.
8. stick a standard screw driver into the lower holes and twist. One side panel will move, one will not. The removeable panel is the one with the logo that lights up. If you are looking at the drive from the back where the ports are, the panel is on the left.
9. Stick the screwdriver between the plastic of the panel that moves. this panel has 4 clips holding it on very tightly but it can be pryed off.
10. Once the panel is open, unplug the drive and remove it. It is in a metal free floating cage. Remove the rubber covers to reveal the screws.
11. Pry the two cage panels apart and the drive is free. There is no permanent damage to the case, so you should be able to mount another drive in it.
