Well, I use the HD only once a week for backup so I think the wear off
turning the HD on and off once a week is less then having the HD spin for
the whole week. At least according to my gut feeling. Plus I turn the
computer off every night anyways as it uses up quite a bit of electricity.
Believe it or not but it makes a difference on the electricity bill.
Finally, as I said several times before there are other reasons for
unplugging the HD... I am not going to repeat myself again...
