Based upon Beolover’s sample, that separation was caused by force. Note that there is thin film residue to the old bond indicating that a shear force will likely be more successful than heat softening. This would call for a non-marring mallet with the platter supported thru the center hole. You could also try a .1mm stainless steel spudger to work around the edge to break the bond.
