I have a question on regards to the health of my hard drive. This afternoon I had to move away from my MacBook Pro for a moment and I accidentally bumped the small desk where the computer was placed. The bump was slight but the computer was on, I cannot tell whether the HDD was in use at the time I bumped the desk. Therefore, I was wondering given that I bumped my MacBook while it was operating, could have I accidentally damaged the HDD? I must say that after the bump the computer is operating normally and again, the bump was slight (I guess the desk swing was less than a inch when I bumped it).


Should I worry about my MacBook Pro's hard drive being damaged by the bump?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 15"; 4GB RAM; nvidia GT 330m 256
