My HDD is suspended but it ended up kind of like this (Look at the the top HDD): http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d155/ ... ension.jpg (This is not my picture, just a random picture I found somewhere else)

It's a WD Green 2TB. Is that harmful at all ?
I read somewhere that the static position of modern hard disks doesn't matter at all. Anyone have more information ?

Thanks!

Nevermind, I found the answer here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21533

It's not harmful for recent drives.

Personally I wouldn't be able to sleep easy knowing my drive was mounted like that.

Why not, it has been proven beyond doubt that any HDD made withing the last decade does not care what angle it is at.
