  • hard drive freezing

    I just set up a sv-24 system and now that winter is finally upon us I am a bit worried that the low temps are going to kill my hard drive one day when i go to boot my system. Any words of caution about that?

    I've had mine running for 2 Minnesota winters. I tend to let the car warm up before driving or using the computer (better for the car, anyway). The computer box allows for free flow of air throughout the car so condensation build up is less of a concern.
    I guess my setup differs from most in that the computer is in the heated passenger compartment, no trunk...
