How to open the Seagate FreeAgent Classic

This is the FreeAgent Classic.  My one is a 160GB external drive.


Step 1 – using a BLUNT object, such as a thin screwdriver, slide it along the front of the wedge.

Step 2 – Pry the case apart.


Step 3 – Lift the drive out of the case, it is just sitting in the case.


Step 4 – the USB to SATA controller is just attached by two screws.


And you are done!

The biggest surprise for me was that the drive was a SATA drive.
