If you're not bothered about the disk then breaking it open is fine, but breaking the case ruins the original and collectors don't like that if you sell the game on!

It would be much easier to write an IPF back to a blank disk and use that than ruin originals! I used to break open disks that had some stains/debris on them but couldn't stand the damage it does so I clean through the shutter now and have had no issues dumping the cleaned disk in my Kryoflux and creating IPFs of supported dumps in disk-utilities. Granted I only clean disks when needed and only use the originals to get a Kryoflux dump, but an intact original is still valuable
