Default Laser Radiation

I took apart a hard drive one time to see what was inside it. Just now I decided to put the hdd back together and put it in my server. Right now It is being formatted. I was wondering if any laser radiation could leak out since it is not completely sealed?

STOP FORMATTING IT!!

This can really damage the hdd and just generally fucks it up if you do that, i recommend throwing it away

I took it out, it wasn't formatting right, and it also smelled funny and was hot.

Formatting the HDD screws it up? Are you on drugs?
