Plattered and Scrambled.

Why do hard drives in Movies or on TV always have the tops off so that you can see the platters? I dare anyone in hollywood to do this. Please make sure this hard drive also has important scripts for the sequel to Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls or the next project by George Lucas.

Well, Hard Drives are sealed to prevent dust from landing on the platter. A dust mite is HUGE compared to a sector of data and with enough of them, your drive will be unusable. Thats why they are sealed up. When you look at a hard drive you can't see the platters spin or the drive head read.. it just doesn't work that way, but in hollywood it always does.
