I currently have my 1050 sitting up sideways on its left side to 
conserve desk space.
My question: Will this cause any problems?

Thanks.

*** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

I don't believe there is a definitive answer to this question.  I've heard
people argue against, and I've heard of people running their drives
sideways without a hitch.  

There's no fundamental reason why a drive can't be
run sideways - the old Percom drives were designed that way.

To me, I'd rather have a little less desk space than run the risk of damage
to my drive, however small that risk may be.
