How can you find out a hard drive's manufacturing date? Tags: Hard Drives Google Search Storage Last response: January 3, 2012 6:14 PM in Storage Share i3griff January 3, 2012 4:54:30 PM Specifically, external HDs that I don't/can't break open to look at the physical disk inside. Is there a way to look it up by serial number? Upon a cursory Google search I came up empty.

You should be able to figure out how they got the drive inside the enclosure in the first place; it can't be that difficult. Or, if you know the manufacturer, the serial number should be linked to the manufacturing date. Call the manufacturer customer support. If it is for warranty purposes, that is what they will ask for. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
