    Does the close proximity of a CRT monitor affect an external hard drive?

    It may or may not. Depends on the quality of the CRT monitor AND the quality
    of the external hard drive.
    I.E. Proper shielding.

    My experimenting leads me to believe the chance of this happening are very
    exagerated. If the HDD is in a meatal case no. If it's in a plastic case and
    the monitor is defective or had shielding removed maybe over a very long
    period of time. I wouldn't worry about it but on the other hand power of the
    magnetism at 2" is 1/4 what it is at one inch. So if you have a little extra
    room.......................
