Salvage Seagate ST320410A 20GB Hard Disk Components

Today i am going to salvage some components from the Seagate ST320410A hard disk. It's very bulky and heavy weigh more than 1 KG of weight. Since it is no longer in use and considering the capacity is way to small for today's modern day computing, i am going to take apart the valuable part from the hard disk. As usual we will need a set of Torx screwdrivers and you can get this from China made around USD $2 for a set comes with 20 pieces of different heads.

So these are what we've salvaged from the hard disk.

1. Neodymium Magnet
2. Hard disk motor
3. Circuit board
4. Aluminum casing

The major different between this hard disk and the modern one is the Neodymium magnet is slightly thicket and larger. That make it more tougher compare to the newer version of hard disk.
