Not worth explaining over since you all feel your big shots
His knowledge is out of date then. In the old days the air around platters had to be "cleanroom" clean. A little dust and it was all over for those drives.
Today the clean air is really a non issue. Built in filters and pressure balancing are common.
And don't even think about leaving me a neg rep. I don't give a flying f**k about them to begin with. You handing out bogus info is my concern.

No...
but you gave me bad rep for daring to disagree with you...

if you honestly got that info from some IBM exec who was working for them for years, then I thikn you should know that he was lying...

if you didn't get that information from some IBM exec then it was you that was lying... either way, what you said wasn't true.

there is no way that smoking will affect anything internal on the disk.

Hard drives are not actually sealed popular to contrary belief, their is a SMALL filter to allow a slightly amount of air into the hard drive to equalize the air pressure.

However, dust particles cannot get thru and I doubt smoke particles could.
