It is actually a rear disk/drum combination. There are small cable activated brake shoes inside the assembly that control the handbrake.

Over the past few years, my x Trail has only just managed to pass the annual MOT test on handbrake, despite new shoes and cable adjustment.
The x trail handbrake is not one of their finer pieces of engineering.
If you are still having problems after new shoes and proper adjustment, then have the cable checked for stretch. At 7 years old it could be past it's best.
