It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

For what? If I recall, the drive is there to store/spool print jobs. You're not supposed to have direct access to it.

If you are really desperate I suppose you could disassemble the system and remove the drive then mount it on another machine, depending on what kind of filesystem it uses (if it's a readable filesystem).

If it's a maintenance issue you should probably call their support line.
