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

All of us use computers but very few of us have seen the inside of a computer hard drive – which is where all our data is stored. One of the reasons is that once a hard disk drive is opened the data on the drive is lost). So I’ve created some videos showing what the inside of a computers disk drive looks like.

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.
