static & hard drives
Hello everyone ! first time post-er,
i just found this forum through google,
first time building an external HDd, and decided to try because I heard its worth the building experience.
Anways, I was putting the hd to the cable, and i needed some leverage, so i put the hd towards my chest. I realized i was wearing a shirt that may produce static so i took it off. the hd came in contact with my clothes several times..
i know big mistake right?
just a precaution b4, i grounded myself by touching my dorm fridge, and i was wearing an anti-static bracelet that was grounded on the back of the dorm fridge. (weird i know, but seems like a good ground).
anyways question : i grounded myself often, touching a metal surface(may be painted, not too sure), in addition to wearing the anti-static bracelet. I didn't move around much if any, except to pivot my upper bod.
is my hdd in danger? [I]since it came in contact with my clothes? i keep telling myself its probably fine since i grounded my body and i was wearing an anti-static bracelet. i was hoping any static from my clothes would be grounded from my grounding activities ~ i don't really know the dynamics of static movement..[/I.
