If you pick up a spinning 3 1/2 drive and try to rotate, you will feel
the gyroscopic force. It's not overwhelming, but it is a surprise the
first time it happens to you.

I don't know that it is a bad idea to trigger that opposing force, but
it sure feels like you're doing something wrong when it happens.

It should be OK, doing it few times.

It surely stresses the bearings, it is like having the laptop running in a train or car: there are accelerations. Repetitive stressing should diminish life.
