Lightbulb Further protecting my Explora 1 harddrive - AFTER a power failure

We've recently been having a few power interruptions again in my area.
The first time my Explora 1's HDD (Harddrive) went a bit wobbly at the knees, all turned out ok but it got me re-thinking the problem.
(BTW, Explora 2 HDDs seem to be far more durable).

Not going to go into the details of why I now think so, just to share that I'm wondering if the Explora 1's actual external PSU (power supply unit) is sensitive to power interruptions when being turned back on.
For this reason, when possible I'm now disconnecting just its DC power lead that connects to the Explora until AFTER the power is restored. So far - perfect results, but it's early days...
