A Hard Drive That Refused to Die!

Some rumors are so ingrained in our minds that we never stop to think or verify the “facts” that we come to believe in, that support these rumors. Dismantling a hard drive that is not located in a clean room (that contains the operating system and personal data) while 14GB of movies is being written to is a sure way to destroy all data, right?

In this video I make an educated prediction, and then dismantle the top of the hard drive while it is being written and read from; and if I may be so bold as to add, this video contains excellent footage of the hard disk’s actuator in action!

Can you predict if the drive died? Will the hard drive start up with the cover open and operate correctly? And what’s with all the Dell multicolored operating system CDs?
