Question about Computers & Internet
Well, if it's for the purposes of making sure it will never work again, here we go...
They usually have screws that require a security bit, about 6 of them infact. You can use a flat-head screwdriver if it's long enough to reach two points of the hex-shape screw... then when they're all off, you can use a flathead screwdriver to pop the top silver cover off. After that, your hard disk is probably ruined forever.
Right about this point, I like to pull the magnets out of it (just because they're handy, and magnets are cool!)... then throw the disk in the bin.
That answers your question perfectly, but if you don't like the fact that there is no way of you opening your hard disk without spending $2000+ giving it to a professional company that have a 100% dust-free room, please don't rate my answer. Otherwise, feel free to give me full points! =-D
