I've gone through 2 harddrives now, not because of corrupt data but because the read write heads just die. I've been mounting my harddrives on their sides instead of laying them flat because I figured any large vibrations or bumps coming in the vertical plane wouldn't affect the drives as much. Since I've lost two now I'm begining to wonder if my strategy is a little off. Any input?
No announcement yet.
what way to orienate harddrive?
