What is inside the Toshiba Canvio Basics 3.0 500GB??

Recently this type of portable HDD is on specials, so I bought one and check it out..

The drive is very slick, and difficult to open. I managed to pry open the case, but to my HORROR, it contains a native USB drive!~!



Do not buy this !!
Toshiba Canvio Basics if you are interested in harvesting the HDD.
It contains a Toshiba Native USB Drive!!

If you still want to buy one, you can get it via the Amazon Store:
