hard disk read/write head
I read some place that
"When a disk is in use, the head remains over the last track which was written or read. As long as the computer is on, any physical shock to the computer can make one or more of the read/write heads touch down on the track, causing data loss. "
"If you prefer to leave your computer on, use a headparking program to park the heads before your leave. This is even more important if your computer is located on the floor(which is not recommended!)."
my computer, both at work and home, is on the floor, is that really bad
often when my computer is on, i push it slightly to the left or the right, or just move it slightly when plugging or unplugging something.
has this messed up the hard disk in any way?
