Frequently Asked Question

What is HDD Protection?


In case of shock, vibration or fall, the hard disk drive (HDD) head can scratch the spinning disks while reading or writing data, resulting in data loss or even destruction.

Hard Disk Drive Protection includes two levels of internal support and one level of external support specifically for the hard disk drive (HDD). The accelerometer detects free falls in all directions and rapidly moves the HDD head from between the HDD platters in preparation for impact. Shock absorption technology further reinforces the HDD in the event of an impact or vibration. And on the outside of the notebook, the HDD Dome Shock Protector reinforces the area of the chassis closest to the HDD platters in order to provide further protection from impact.
