Cold hard drive fluid bearing data loss
With the recent discussion of fluid bearings causing the hard drive platters to run slow when cold, I was wondering about data loss. Do I have to worry about the slowing of platter speed causing the platter and head to get "out of sync" during a write operation and corrupting data? If yes, is there anything I can do about it? So far with my current drive a western digital 7200rpm drive I havenít had any problems with data corruption that I have had with past drives. When cold, the system runs slow which I am assuming is caused by the slowing of the platter and possibly the head due to the cold bearings, so something is going on. Just curious if this drive is better than others I have used in dealing with platter speed anomalies or if I have just been lucky.
