Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 9:55AM | 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! In this update, we added two myths : - You need to overwrite your hard disk drive at least x number of times with zeros and ones to prevent any recovery of data. - 7200 RPM hard disk drives are faster than 5400 RPM hard disk drives. We now have 50 HDD myths in this article!"
