[SOLVED] Is it a good idea to put your external HDD on the desk close to speakers ?

When it came to preventing damage on external hard drives and better the chance for normal life time, you should focus on:
  • Avoid any motion or vibration, because of the delicate mechanic inside.
  • Avoid placing the drive on a soft or moveable surface.
  • Only turn it on when you transfer files to it, then turn it off.
You can probably solve the issue by playing high music when the external drive is disconnected.
