What wears out in an HDD? Is it only the tone arm that breaks? or
can the bearings the platter rides on break??? Good watches use
jewels, rubies, as bearings; and cheap watches use metal. What do
hard drives use?
I googled but couldn't find much about this. Does the spindle really
ride on an air cushion? Even when the drive is positioned sideways?
