Cruzer Blade: Accidentally slicing off soldering?

So I transplanted a Cruzer Blade into a 3D printed shell and I accidentally sliced off a metal bit. The red circle in the picture shows where the damage was done (the entire metal bump is missing leaving two metal dots underneath). The drive seems to be working but I am a bit paranoid. Should it affect the drive?2784_1525649405432.jpeg

I would certainly think so.

I've been able to use the drive normally, I also messaged my maker teacher on Facebook (he is an expert with electronics) and he said it shouldn't be a problem.

USB3 support?  Ground?  Heat sensor?  Does he have the schematics for the drive?  Or just helping you get your project done?

 

Whatever, your choice.

Could someone show me the inside of their Cruzer Blade so I have a reference for the circuits?
