2 Feet Could Cost You Your Memories
Dropped Hard Drive Not Working
A lot of people wouldn’t expect a simple, two foot drop of your external hard drive to cost you your files. Hard Drives are very sensitive. We have seen drops as small as from the couch onto a soft carpet decimate the heads within a hard drive.
Hard Drive Protection Tips
- Be very careful with your external hard drives. Set them down gently on any surface. Also, of course, make sure they are never dropped, even a simple two feet.
- Keep hard drives in a protective case, preferably with ample padding, if you have to move them.
- Store devices out of reach of any children, or other individuals who do not understand how to handle sensitive equipment.
