I purchased 2 x 4TB WD Reds in USA and I want to carry them with me back to my home country i.e. India.
My flight is direct flight from SFO to BOM. Its Indian airline. I chose this flight to try out their direct flights instead of layover.
Anyways, I want to carry 2 x 4TB 3.5" internal hard disks with me. These are new hard disks, I have opened them and put them back in the antistatic bag they came in and have taped them. I am planning on carrying both in carry-on for obvious reasons. Will I be allowed to carry them without any issues with customs? I also have my laptop with me.
I have an option to carry only one and ask a relative who will be flying back in the next 10 days to carry the other HDD.
I would prefer it if both were with me but if I will be stopped at customs then I would rather opt for carrying only one and sending the other with my folks.
Any suggestions / recommendations how I should carry these disks back with me?
