Inside of a hard disk drive

Ever wondered what the inside of a hard drive looks like?

A hard drive is a computer peripheral that stores all your data within a computer. Due to the nature of a hard drive (ie once it is open the data on the drive is lost) not many people have seen the inside of an actual hard drive.

Below are two videos showing the insides of both a 3.5" (desktop) and 2.5" (laptop) hard drive.

  Seagate Barracuda 3.5" SATA desktop hard drive 

  Toshiba 2.5" SATA laptop hard drive

Warning: If you follow the steps in these video ALL you data will be lost. If you need to recover data off a hard drive please consult a data recovery expert.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comment field below.
