I just cleaned my desktop and begin wondering about cleaning an enternal HD. You can't open case to see anything or the warranty is void. I wonder what is best just a can off air and not use the tube and blow out what is loose of a vaccum cleaner?

Very nice question indeed!!!
I mean, I can keep the drive healthy, but to clean it I use a paint brush and dust off the port and air vents over my drives

I wasn't to keen on the aircan since you can't see and the circuit board is delicate. With the tower opened up you can see where you are blasting. I don't recall seeing anything about cleaning external drives anywhere. I know dust build up can really cause heat to build up.

It is true that the most of the external drives cannot be opened
- you will void the warranty opening the case and unmounting the drive -
but in some cases you can open the case without voiding the warranty
