Can you elaborate more. Of course, when you open/dismantle an hdd you expose the internal parts. Or, one can situate an hdd outside the case which I sometimes do when testing hdd's.

Hidden drives usually refers to HDD and exposed drives are usually Optical drives (cd/dvd).

Since they are 3.5" HDDs, my guess is there are five internally mounted HDDS and two that can be installed from the outside, probably hot-swappable.
