>I also orderd one of those super strong neodym magnets, just for fun

They're actually really cool, and not that expensive. Plausible story, I'd do it. But I'm not retarded enough to order them on the same day. That being said, the magnet shouldn't have done **** to the platters, unless they had data written to them. Why the **** would you order a pre-written disk anyway? In which case, OP is retarded, and even if the magnet did somehow pull the platters too close to the needle, he can return it.

TL;DR, you're gay and so is OP.

I recall dissasembling a HDD. Its encased in metal, that means all outside magnetism parses trough without affecting the inside. HDD itself also contains insanely powerfull neodymium magnets, they help operate the reading/recording arms. The point is no damage could have been done, OP is a faggot.

Also, what billybong said in #8.

If the HDD was properly packaged, there should be at least 1cm of air all around the HDD so it can't get knocked. That should be enough distance to keep any sensetive components safe from the magnets.

Besides, To really screw a HDD you need an AC electromagnetic field.. a static magnic could at worst corrupt data (that isn't even there yet)
