Yes, but since you don't want to use it, who cares. If you have one 
where the rectifier is 4 x 1N4001, toss it. If you are the happy owner 
of a PSU that contains a real bridge rectifier, you can recycle that 
one, use a new capacitor and then the switching regulator.

Well, all you really need to preserve is the transformer and the 
integrity of the case. The transformer is hard to damage.
