For example a Seagate Barracuda? Is it Torx? What size

It's a Star T8.

Since there is almost no chance of you reassembling the hard drive in working order, getting the exact size isn't quite as critical as with other components.

I believe many Seagate Barracudas use Torx screws (T6) but your specific model might differ. Check carefully before proceeding.

In a pinch, you might try a close-size hex key--sometimes they fit a Torx head fairly well.
