Re: Any one ever crack open one of their hard drives?

You can't 'crack it open' unless you have a clean room.

Introduce the innards to the dust that you'll find (and cat hair etc.) in a normal home, and you'll truly kill it stone dead.

If it's a USB drive, then it will be a hard drive within a USB electronics + case, and you may be able to remove the actual drive from the USB casing and try it on its own, but no, no, no - do not 'crack open' the actual drive.

You don't have any backups?
