    Samsung’s G Series HDDs are known for its use of eco-friendly materials and distinctive design. However, not many know how much these drives can endure. Good for us is that Samsung has uploaded a video of the same torturing the G2 HDD and ultimately running it down by Mini Cooper. The expected result should’ve been a sad death for the drive but surprisingly, the drive survived with all the data intact.
