    Hard drive platter

    Are the plates in the hard drive platter conductive? Just out of plain curiosity

    What do you mean by the plates? If you mean the platters, those are made of ceramic or aluminum that have a magnetic material sputtered onto it. All of that can be conductive, but eventually it ends up with a polymer coating that protects it. I believe the polymer coating is non-conductive.

    The next time I open one up, I'll let you know.
