Computer hard disk is more easily damaged parts, but a considerable part of the reason is improper user. In fact, as long as the daily use of attention to some tips, we can reduce the possibility of faulty hard drives, thus extending their normal life.

1. Read bogey off

Mostly currently hard drive 7200 rpm, during read and write, the whole disc rotating at high speed, if the power suddenly cut off, will make violent head and disc friction, leading to bad sectors or corrupted hard disk. At shutdown time, we must pay attention to the hard disk on the chassis panel light is not flashing, that after the hard disk read and write operations have been completed in accordance with normal procedures before they can turn off the computer.

2. To prevent the shock by

Hard disk storage devices are very sophisticated, read and write operation, the floating head height in the disc surface, only a few microns; even if does not work when the head is in contact with the disc. Hard at work, in the event of a large shock, it is easy to cause the head relative to the impact area with the data, resulting in damage or scratch the disc information area disk, lost files stored on hard disk data. Therefore, at work or shut down until after the spindle motor has not stopped, do not move the computer or mobile hard disk, so as not to strike on the head and disc platter scratches the surface of the magnetosphere. In addition, the hard drive installation and removal process should take extra care to prevent excessive shaking or violent collision with the iron chassis.

3. Away from the field

Damaged hard disk data magnetic field is invisible killer, so to not close as possible to drive a strong magnetic field, such as speakers, phone, radio, etc., so that the information recorded in the hard drive been damaged by magnetization.

4. Reduce the frequency of operation

If the long run a program (such as large-scale software or play games), then we should pay attention, so often read and write head would stay on the same hard drive location (ie, procedures where the sector), leaving the hard disk have bad sectors. In addition, if prolonged use of an operating system, but also make the hard disk sector where the system files (not move) is a long read status, thus speeding up the rate of damage to the sector. Of course, it is best to install two or more alternate operating system in order to avoid long term a sector on the hard drive read and write operations.

5. The appropriate use of time

In the day, it is best not to let the hard drive work more than 10 hours, and not more than 8 hours continuous work, it should be in use for some time to turn off the computer, so the hard disk has enough time to rest

6. Regular defragmentation

Hard work will frequently read and write, and the program to add, delete will also have a large number of non-contiguous disk space and disk fragmentation. When disk space is not continuous with the increasing number of disk fragmentation, it will affect the disk read performance. If the data deletion operation of more frequent or regular replacement of software, you should at regular intervals (eg one month) to run the Windows system comes with the Disk Defragmenter tool, the disk is not contiguous space debris and the reorganization of the hard disk play to the best performance.

7. More memory and better power supply

If you regularly use a large number of memory requirements of software (such as image processing, modeling and other software), it should increase the memory, to reduce the large number of files exchanged on the hard disk when the read and write operations, thus prolonging the life of the hard disk. Also, be sure to use the properties of stable power supply, if the power supply impure or power shortage, could easily result in data loss or hard drive damage.
