removing hard drive, y510

[ Edited ]

The motherboard fried on my y510 so I would like to remove the hard drive and salvage some stuff from it. I have taken off the panels and located the hard drive, now how do I take it out without damaging anything? There's a tab sticking out from it, should I just pull that? I've never removed a laptop hdd before. Can someone help me pls? Smiley Happy Here's a picture I took of it: http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm209/lilballer000/blah/IMAG0121-Copy.jpg

Should slide one way or the other, (to the Right in that photo)
use the tab to pull and lift out.
Four screws holding the drive to the caddy also.
