[Tech ARP] Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 5.1 - PCSTATS.com [Tech ARP] Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 5.1
Sun, Jul 14 2013 | 8:21AM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

This guide was written in response to the numerous fallacies about the hard disk drive that are still being propagated in many forum discussions. As you read through this guide, you may think that some of these myths may have been made up. We wished that was true. We collected these myths from various discussions we heard or read over time. So, let`s get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies or myths and debunk them! *Here are the changes in this update : * *- Rearranged the guide to make it shorter and more readable. - Added Myth #56 on hard disk drives having an internal vacuum or low-pressure atmosphere. - Added Myth #57 on the retrieving of overwritten data by nefarious government agencies. - Updated Myth #52 on rescuing data from a dead hard disk drive by moving its platters to an identical donor hard disk drive.* *We now have 57 HDD myths in this article!*"
