Solved Can't Open Toshiba Canvio 2tb USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive Enclosure! Tags: Hard Drives Desktops Storage External Hard Drive Toshiba Enclosure Last response: July 25, 2013 5:10 PM in Storage Share Shuffle314 July 25, 2013 4:54:49 PM Just to clarify that we're all talking about the same external hard drive, here's the link to its Newegg page. Toshiba conveniently names all of their external drives "Canvio" : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... So, after a few months of use on this drive, I've finally decided to just crack the enclosure open so I could use it as my boot drive... Or so I thought. The problem is, the case evidently isn't designed to be able to be opened. I've tried everything: pocket-knives, jewelers screwdrivers, and even zip-ties. Obviously, none of them worked. I do want to save the enclosure though, as it isn't all that ugly, and on top of that, it's USB 3.0 Check out my Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/Shuffle314159 More about : open toshiba canvio 2tb usb desktop hard drive enclosure Reply to Shuffle314 Best solution nukemaster a c 101 G Storage July 25, 2013 5:10:02 PM See if these instructions help you.
