It is not recomeded to take it apart to get to the hard drive.
does it not work???
if you still need it apart. try lifting the rubber feet from it.
also this maybe a snap together unit with small amounts of glue at the corners. you may need to wedge something in the groove.
good luck. i dont have one in front of me so i can't see the unit.
