These tips will help prevent Hard Drive errors and failures.
1. Purchase a high end power surge protector which has a high joule rating of about 1200 or higher. A garden variety power bar is not a surge protector. A surge protector will say surge protector with a joule rating. Also the newer ones include 3 lights. Important! The only way the surge protector or suppressor will work properly and help protect your computer is if the surge protector is plugged into a grounded outlet. The newer surge protectors will tell you if the outlet is grounded with a grounding light indicator. A surge protector or suppressor will also help protect your computer's hardware.
2. Purchase a high end battery backup system. During power outages it can cause hard drive failures and errors on the disk. Also including hardware failure
3. No not unless you can not help it turn off your machine using the power button this also can cause errors on the disk, file system errors and corruption. If you need to shut down the system by using the power button, before powering up the machine again wait for 10-15 seconds before powering up the machine so that the hard drive platters can spin down.
