Packaging for returning the HDD
When returning a faulty HDD, package it in the same manner as it was delivered to
protect the HDD unit from being damaged by shock, static electricity or humidity
during transport.
The hard drive must be placed inside of an anti-static electro-static discharge
(ESD) bag before being placed in the shipping box.
Packaging for Single Drives
z Plastic spacers: Use plastic spacers on each end of the hard drive. Position the
hard drive in the centre of the box to protect all four sides. (This packaging is
sometimes referred to as a GeoSprings Kit.)
z Foam rubber block: You may use a foam rubber block with special cutout
section for the hard drive. All four sides of the hard drive should be protected by
foam rubber.
Packaging for Multiple Drives
z Use a rubber block with special cut-out sections for returning multiple hard
drives. All four sides of each hard drive should be protected by foam rubber.
IMPORTANT
Use of padded shipping envelopes, bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts is not
considered acceptable packaging.
