Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hard disks is not really a part that could be operated. It is a hardware part of the computer system where the Operating System and other computer software applications are installed. Before operating any type of hard disk drive, it is still better to seek for the advice of a computer technician.

    Ok - Hope this helps... 1) Keep all systems at constant temperature as low as you reasonably can. Key point is that the internal temperature in any system is going to be higher than the room itself. - This includes keeping dust out, since dust buildup acts as an insulating blanket allowing heat buildup. - This also includes proper cooling. 2) Have equipment mounted securely in a vibration-free (or as close as you can get) environment. 3) Make sure that all equipment is grounded. 4) Make sure that the equipment is AT LEAST protected by a high-quality surge protector (APC and Tripp-Lite are good brands, Belkin is getting better), and preferably on UPS. 5) Not exactly what you asked for, but if you do S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, you can learn in advance the signs of impending failure, and deal with it in a timely manner. 6) Run at least RAID 1 (Mirroring), but RAID 3 and 5 are even better to distribute your risk across multiple devices, thus reducing the risk of data loss due to any particular drive failure.
