Hi,

Years ago I remember that hard disks had to be positioned horizontally, printed board facing down. The documentation said so. If you wanted to place them vertically, the documentation also specified which face had to look down, but warned that the wear would be worse.

So I always put them horizontally, without thinking.

But I'm about to place one vertically, and I don't see any mention of this in the documentation. Have things changed, or have I missed something in the docs?

I'm using seagate:

Model Family: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 (AF)
Device Model: ST500DM002-1BD142
