moving hdd from vertical to horizontal position, bad move?

ok, i have a lian-li pc-68 case, which holds my 2 hdd's vertically. i would like to move the drives to an Antec style case which holds them horizontally. will moving the position of these hard drives ruin the platter in the drives or damage any data in them. i was told that one is never to move a previously installed vertical hdd to a horizontal position b/c for some reason it is not good for the hdd. is there any truth to this? please help. i appreciate any help given! thanks in advance, guys!
