My usb connection inside my Maxdor once touch drive has been pushed back into the drive- is there a special tool for opening up the drive? I don't see any screws and hate to try cracking the case open.
There are no special tools required or available. You just have to carefully prise apart the two halves with a flat-bladed screwdriver all the way round to "pop" the clips.
This job has been deliberately made difficult to stop users changing the drive (I assume).
