The alarm killed your hard drive...not the gas

(1/1)

Solares:
Here is an intriguing article from 3M - fire suppression

TLDR: The Novec (halon replacement) gas emitted when their fire suppression systems are activated does not kill hard disks. But, the press release claims, what does kill them is the sound of the alarm itself.

I am very dubious about the claims made in this article. Yes, I've heard of HDDs being killed by excessive physical vibration but never from sources of sound. 

It would be great to get some other perspectives on this?
