Anyone found a good way to remove the label on these drives? Rosewoods are easy in comparison.

LOL. Yes you can't seem to help tearing the label, a real PITA. Makes us look unprofessional if a client decides not to go ahead with the recovery and you hand them back a hard drive that look like my dog has chewed it.

Give it a gentle hot air round to loosen the glue and those labels peel off smoothly.
