I am trying to locate the hard drive for a Panasonic Toughbook CF-30. I have searched the Interent and haven't been able to come up with anything. I have seen where some models have hdd under the keyboard. Not sure if the CF-30 is that way or not. I don't want to break anything. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Ahhh. Most model Toughbooks the hdd is very difficult to locate and get out. However, this one is very simple. I just got off the phone with Panasonic support. On the right side of the laptop, first door. Unlock the door, there is a piece of tape at the bottom. Pull the tape towards you, and the hdd slides right out. Its contained inside a shock proof enclosure.

You can see a nice picture of where the hard drive is
Basically open up the box, and slide it out.  There is a caddy that the drive sits in you will have to take that off and move it to the new drive
