Harddisk Crash In Tibet

This article describes how a harddisk might crash in high-altitude places, like Tibet.

I try to search for operating altitude for harddisks, and they all seem to be working up to about 3 km from the sea level due to the lower air pressure in high altitude.

I don't know why the computer loaned to the article's author worked though. May be its disk is one of the Endurstar harddisks that operate up to 5 km.
