Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 4.5

Posted on Thursday, August 04 2011 @ 18:30:59 CEST by


TechARP discusses more HDD myths, you can read it over here.
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 new myths :

- It is safe to move an external HDD that is still connected to the computer, as long as you first disconnect it using the Safely Remove Hardware feature.
- You can fix hard disk drives by swapping their damaged PCBs.

We also updated Myth #16 on the reformatting of hard disk drives to fix bad sectors.

We now have 45 HDD myths in this article!
