    Sounds easy. Problem is, it's an internal hard drive in an external enclosure, currently in a 5+hour process of a clone job. I want to get the serial number off it without having to stop the cloning, take apart the external enclosure, and finding the serial number.

    System Profiler > Firewire shows me SOME info on the hard drive, but not the serial number.

    Anyone know of a way to get that serial number? Maybe a freeware app or something? I've struck out so far.

    Have you tried Disk Utility? I think that information is somewhere in there. I'm at work right now so I can't check.

    I did try it. It will give the model number, but not the serial number, unfortunately.
