TechARP has compiled a list of the most common hard disk misconceptions and myths into one big article, and paired them with the facts. If you have someone in your life who believes that to mount a HDD vertically, you have to reformat the HDD vertically to ensure proper spreading of magic dust and to fully repair any bad sectors caused by sudden power failures ... please send them there.
"To be honest, many articles have covered these topics. It would have been easy for someone to do a quick search
online before imparting their opinions to newbies. Unfortunately, it became apparent to us that some folks just
prefer to trust their innate instincts over logic and knowledge. As such, these hard drive urban legends have
remained more popular than the simple truth. So, let's get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies
or myths and debunk them!"
