This is very familiar here in Scandinavia. You may easily develop 100 000 Volts just by passing nearby, meaning a few meters away. I have measured, it is true. Do not use artifical fabrics like nylon ...xlon made clothes. Do not use anything plastic or woollen. Ground your equipment properly. Use shielded cables. Do not use open or windowed computer cases. It is sad but the manufacturers in Taiwan, China or California know nothing about static electricity and all the problems it causes. If they knew they would not pack hard drives into EPS which is one of the worst materials in ESD sense.
