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.

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!"
