    Is it OK to stack HDDs?

    Hello,

    I have many internal drives that I use for storage. When I need to use I just connect them to my computer via USB-to-sata adapter.
    When not in use, I like to stack them, like so

    When stacking them, the drives attract each other via their magnets and stay firm which is why i like to stack them.
    Would the magnets inside them cause issues for the drives?

    Thank you.

    I had a stack of 5-6 of those I used in the same fashion as you. The ones I didn't sell or reuse are still working great. It takes really powerful magnets to damage a hard drive.
