Description

Shelling (removing the casing) of a Western Digital 4TB MyBook USB3 External Hard Drive. Removed a little bit clumsily, but it's simple enough to do. Always test your external drives for defects before shelling them! Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Diagnostic is very useful for this: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=608&sid=3&lang=en Always make sure you're running the latest firmware on new drives! For Western Digital, they provide a Universal Firmware Updater. http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/search/1/a_id/3868 You can refer to this page for Seagate drives: http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/207931en
