Hello,

We search how to open the Seagate "mobile HDDs". The screw behind the label is not a Torx. See the following pictures:

This is a pentalobe screw. I have seen the HSA and ramp screw on Seagate mobile HDDs are pentalobe but the metal cover screws were still torx.

Hello ,
its a pentalobe 1.5mm not pentalobe 1.2mm ,Little Rare To Find ,German Brands are best

Edit : Its Not 1.5mm and also Not 1.2mm .Though Only 1.2mm Screwdriver in pentalobe will fit into this but i think Seagate has a ODD Size ,It Should be 1.3mm .1.2 mm is a bit loose and 1.5mm does not fit ,What the heck i would say,just like in platter they use T7 in many HDDs odd size

It means it's not part of the cover, it holds down the magnet for the heads.
You don't need to remove it, unless your doing a transplant.
Hope this helps.

ah, I thought you were implying the screw somehow had magnetic properties. :)
