My Passport Essential performing well, Enclosure not doing so well

So ive had my My Passport Essential 1TB Black for about 7-8 months now, after i purchased it from OfficeWorks.

Last night i broke not the drive, but the enclosure that contains the drive. The side panel that wraps around 3 out of 4 of the sides popped off after the beam inside broke. If required i can provide pictures of it. Thanks to the shock protectors on the corners, all my data is fine, and i was just wondering if i could get a replacement for the case.

Sorry Mate,

That’s not going to happen at least from WD, you just void the warranty of the unit. However you can purchase a third party USB enclosure to put the drive on it.

The original encrypting PCB will need to accompany the disk when it is installed in the new housing.

So theres no chance of getting it replaced? everything is intact except for a weak piece in the inner casing. I can provide Photo Proof.
