a few weeks ago my friend got a new HDD from his dad that was lyin around so he gave me his old one which is a godsend since i now have someithing with actual space on it. Taking it out of the cage, the foil on it ripped (its a WD) and looking in it platters were visible!!!!!!!!. THis was a smal rip. I patched it with a piece of duct tape and to my amazement it works quite well. This is amazing, its no hdd mod and instead of having no top, it had a small 1 inchx1cm tear in foil on the side but it still exposed the platters. As to the construction of a drive using foil only to cover an area as sensitive as that, im disapointed with WD.
