How to open the case on a WD My Book Essential?
There no apparent screws or fasteners, so I believe it is 'plastic snap' lock.
This drive has intermittent power problems and I believe 'something' is loose inside, or I will put the drive in another case (hopefully, at worst).
Regarding the power problem, sometimes when it fails, a light tap on the case makes it power back on.
Это хороший вопрос?
not an answer but having the same problem and thinking to get the bare drive out of the case... brand new except for a bunch of my files that have gone missing on this P.O.S. - sticking with seagate from now on
