ahh, good old "Dents, Holes & Lacerations"

I just got 10 of those and appears my whole lot are faulty, all flat as a pancake! Bending them now in the hope they work!

seriously though, you may be lucky and it still works as there is only a small PCB in there, and it is the "good" side.

Had quite a few of those drives fail too, they start to install OS, but then die and lock up the PC when trying to boot. Looks like you saved time as thats what you will want to do with it soon!
