    it’s not made to be opened, and i’m not sure it would work if you could.

    buy a normal desktop (internal) hard drive and put it into your new enclosure

    Before you attempt to open it, please check the following:

    Is your new case designed for S-ATA (Serial) drives or P-ATA (Parallel) ones?
    Is your new case designed for 2.5" or 3.5" drives?

    If your old drive doesn’t match what the new enclosure was designed for there is no point in removing it!

    If you still want to take out the old drive there are probably concealed screws somewhere on the casing (maybe under stickers or rubber feet), although some casings do just clip together.
    Please bear in mind that opening this up WILL invalidate any warranty you may have on the old drive.

    A large axe will do it.

    Why extract your old drive? ,the new one you have bought is EXTERNAL not internal you just plug your new drive into a USB slot
