HP Simple Save Problem

Hey Guys,


One week ago I bought a HP simple save 1TB external HDD

I immedeatly started with backing up my data. After some days i switched die Harddrive on again.

Everything seemed normal. 


But what was that? While operating i lifted the external drive a little bit and I thought "o man what is going on?"

Die Harddrive restarted during that. I said to myself: What if do that a little bit more  perhaps turning the harddrive 180° while lifting?

Well, the HDD shut down. I put it on the desk again and 2 secs after that the HDD started again.

I know thats nothing you do normally with HDD but something like that must not happen.


Cursing aroung I prepared to delete the data and bring it back  to the shop. But then I stopped. What if it whas a feature?

What if the HDD does something like self-protecting it against external influences?


Thats why im posting here ?

Maybe somebody else experienced that?
