you will find all this out if you ever try to file a claim.

"A valid proof of purchase may be required to prove eligibility. If you do not have a valid proof of purchase, the limited warranty period will be measured from the date of sale from HGST to the authorized distributor."
So yes, you can file a warranty claim without a proof of purchase - your purchase date will just be backdated to the original shipping date (aka the date that it shows when you check the warranty in the first place).

you will find all this out when you try to exercise the bare drive warranty.

I haven't RMAed any of my opened drives, granted. If you want to share your experiences and support them with some evidence, go for it. Otherwise, we're both just theorizing
Anyways, I don't see why the drives would show a warranty if they're associated with the external enclosures "by the serial numbers". If they show a warranty on the website - they should be honoring their warranty. Feel free to call corporate to discuss your upcoming false advertising lawsuit (check your state consumer protection laws first!)

hitachi knows the drives were in enclosures by the serial numbers.
if you try to make a claim on the warranty it will not work it since the drives have been removed from their enclosures, thus voiding the warranty.
also, you wont be able to provide the correct proof of purchase aka receipt showing the drive was purchased as a bare drive.
why are you having so much trouble making sense out of that.

I mean, if they have 1.7 average rating on their own site, shouldn't you be worried?
