Story:
I have one bad hdd and now it looks better than just old-bad hdd. I have not tested it, but i think it will not work or work with errors, because i hac opened it's cover and destroy the vacum. But that's so.

!!! Don't try to do that with your loner >120GB hdd.

Yeah. HDDs aren't vacuum sealed. And the head is NOT close to the platter, it is ON the platter. I had a ruined HDD and when I moved the head away from the platter (still intact with the "hand" that holds them), they became stuck in pairs. On the "hand" there are small thin pieces of metal that apply pressure all the time on the head so it ON the platter. I'm working on same project but with working HDD.

Notice the hole on the top of the drive that says don't cover? There's a white air filter near that under the cover. It allows dust free air exchange.

I dont claim to know every thing about modding hdds but yeah it isnt that they're vacum sealed, its that the platters are super dust free. Theres such a small amount of space between the magnetic head abd the platter that one tiny spec of dust could ruin the surface. I once took apart an old hdd that was fried, touched the platter and left a finger print, then spun the platter the head left a mark in print that was left, thats how close it is! Ive heard one can make a sort of clean room out of their bathroom by running a really hot shower for like 10-15 min then let all the steam clear usuing the vent. the steam grabs all the dust in the air and the vent sucks it away leaving you with a realatively dust free...
