Do you or your company own a malfunctioning external hard disk? Unfortunately you are not alone. The last months we have received call after call about broken extern hard disks. Most customers believe that the "LaCie hard disk" has broken down however, LaCie do not produce any own brand of hard disks, just good looking boxes. The hard disk itself is usually of the brand Maxtor or Western Digital but also Seagate in the larger RAID units.
The problems so many clients experience with these disks are mostly caused by overheat. These good looking boxes simply lack any effective ways of ventilation so the heat stays inside the box. Since the heat has no way to go the disk gets warmer and warmer, eventually the fluid bearing loses its viscosity which in turn causes the engine to vibrate and soon break down completely.
When a hard disk engine starts to vibrate it is just a matter of time before a severe hard disk crash is a fact. These most unwanted vibrations provoke microscopic movements on the hard disks media layers. When these vibrations are in action sooner or later a read-head will hit the surface and bounce away pretty much like a flat stone being tossed on a calm ocean. The difference, in this case, is that the stone looses its kinetic energy rather quickly where in the read-head it gather more energy for each hit and usually continues to do so until the hard disk eventually stops or gets shut down.
