The platter/s and their bearing don't really get effected by gravity, so it doesn't really matter if they are mounted horizontally or vertically. I've seen manufacturers install them both ways.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I've been running my hard drives both ways for the last few years, no problems :thumbsup:.
