I know that there are a million threads asking about Applecare coverage for hard drives (yes, it covers your hard drive unless you open it up), but this thread is different. I installed an SSD in my macbook pro a couple of months ago. I put my original apple hard drive into an external enclosure. The SSD is working great, but the original hard drive (which I was using for backup in it's external enclosure) has died. Will Applecare still cover the original hard drive? None of the stickers/seals on the hard drive have been touched.... all I did was put it into an external enclosure. I know that I could put it back in the machine (take out the SSD temporarily) and they'd almost certainly replace it, but I'd really rather not open my machine up again. So the question is, will they still cover it if I bring in the hard drive in the third party enclosure (or if I bring it in "naked", without an enclosure?) Thanks for your replies.
