    Son's new laptop has a feature that is supposed to protect the harddrive from shock hazards (dropping it etc.)

    In oreder for it to work, the user has to activate the protection feature. It's a simple procedure, you go to a vaio utility program on computer and check a box.

    Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but why wouldn't it be automatic? Why does the user have to activate it? Is there a downside to having it turned on?

    Thanks,
    Len

    LenC, if this old thread: VAIO HDD Protection **Issues** is any indication, a possible "system freeze" could be the reason why the user has to activate it.

    Don't know the laptop model, but this VAIO SZ58GN/C write-up says, under VAIO HDD Protection (scroll to the bottom):
    See if your laptop comes with that utility.
