Where to put external harddiscs ? / avoiding deletion by magnetic fields ?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have an external USB hard disc with a lot of backup files on it.
Where should I put (or better: where should I NOT put) this external harddisc in
be safe to not accidential delete the contents?

I could imagine that e.g  putting it on top of a monitor would delete the
contents because
of the magnetic field of the monitor.

What about TVs or magnetic transformator for halogen lamps or laser printers?

What distance from these devices is safe?
