bah! it should read "...standing ON its ear..."
me & my fking typos
....or standing vertical, if you like that better
how safe is it to leave it vertical and run it for days on end?
(i.e....external drives on a vertical stand)
i am between two thoeries on this....
1. they ship with vertical stands so it must be OK, or....
2. they were intended for backup drives: turn it on, back it up, shut it down
