Everything that is ever "in" a hard drive is in it from the time it's first made. The only changes made when something is written is in placement of things that are already contained therein. Therefore, the actual weight cannot change. There has to be some kind of in the physical makeup of the hard drive for the weight to change, and this only happens while the computer is on (electric current passes through). When the computer is off, the hard drive is made up of exactly the same components no matter how much has been written to it. Those components don't change in weight.
