Synopsis

Free-fall protection for spinning laptop hard drives

Description

Prevents shock damage to the internal spinning hard drive(s) of some HP and Dell laptops. When sudden movement is detected, all input/output operations on the drive are suspended and its heads are parked on the ramp, where they are less likely to cause damage to the spinning disc. Requires a drive that supports the ATA/ATAPI-7 IDLE IMMEDIATE command with unload feature, and a laptop with an accelerometer. It has no effect on SSDs.
