my cousin took me to give him my old hard drive, since he wanted to open it. I gave it to him. However, he has sometimes forced open (had overlooked 2 screws). When he called me I heard a gas-like odor. I guess from the hydrodynamic bearings. Is this dangerous to your health? We immediately opened the window and put the hard drive out.
It is a Western Digital Caviar 80GB üm WD800BB.
I hope someone knows
