Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 11:33AM | Filed under: Hard Drives| 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 : * *- Added Myth #58 on knocking on a malfunctioning hard disk drive to unlock its bearings and get it spinning again. - Added Myth #59 on why hard disk drive cannot go faster than 15,000 RPM. - Added Myth #60 on keeping a tablet (iPad / Nexus / Surface) in the same bag with a notebook to prevent the magnets in the tablet and its smart cover from wiping out data in the notebook`s hard disk drive. * *We now have 60 HDD myths in this article!*"
