did you know that hard drives have an “expected life span”?
There are three main reason that a hard drive will fail:
(1) manufacturer defect: occurs within the first few months or within the first year
(2) random failure: may occur within the first 36 months and
(3) wear: at the four year mark the moving parts in a hard drive start to fail.
So please be sure to back up your important files. For back up tips, check out last week’s Tuesday Tips.
