Of course you're going to spin it up. Drives are surprisingly tough.
 I've run drives with the cover off several times. To avoid a head
crash, avoid dust. If you think the air might be dusty, disable the
head movement and let it spin for a while to move any remaining dust
out of the way -- winchesters have a small internal filter which
filters the air as it is dragged round by the platters.
