currently I have running 2 Seagate Exos HDDs in my NAS (Synology DS918).
There the HDDs are installed vertically.
I plan to move them to a new NAS-Server (TrueNAS). But there I have to install
In the past it was not considered “wise” to change the orientation once the drives have been running for a while. (bearings)
Is this still the case or can this be ignored with the new generation of HDDs?
(I do not want to risk the lifetime of the HDDs due to that)
Thanks a lot in advance!
