My G Drive 3.0 ( G-DRIVE mobile USB Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive 1TB (7200RPM) (0G02874)) has a broken port, and from the previous topics I figured it can be put into another enclosure (like this one)
To put it into a new enclosure, I need to remove the little board that goes into SATA (sorry, I do not know the correct name for it.) Here is a picture of this “little green part” from a video.
However, from the comments on that video, the person was not able to keep the data on his hard drive. I have tried to detach that little green board from the drive, but it seems to sit there pretty firmly. I am afraid that pulling too hard will cause damage.
Has anybody tried to remove that part and put it into a new enclosure? Any tips on how to not damage it, and whether the data will be safe?
