Small related question is there any long term harm to laying a disk on it's side (i.e. it lays flat when the tower is up right but on it's side
squeezed into a rack)


The ideal answer is 'no'.  The 'safe' answer is 'possibly'.  In other
words, I wouldn't do it personally, but I don't expect it to cause
harm.  I'd suspect it'd be more succeptible to a head crash in a
vertical position.



Most drives in an drive array are on their side, seems not to be any problem.
