Re: Years old discussions about internal drives

I would be more concerned about whether the dock is REALLY stopping the drive with a stop command, or just by disconnecting the power.

You want the heads to disengage and then the drive to power down, not have the dock just disconnect the power and drop the heads on the disk. That creates slews of bad sectors very quickly.

I had some cheapo dock that could not respond to a soft unplug. It was only good for SSD.
