    I guess only HGST drives come looking not so bad from the report. Not that encouraging...

    Hardware fails, what is news there?
    Backup is your friend, that's why we mention it a lot.

    cheers, Paul

    True, but it's nice to know which brand seems to fail the most/fastest. Backups are our friend.

    I must be lucky. I can only remember one hard drive failure since the DOS days. And I did have a backup. I have used a variety of hard drive vendors.
