Pro Tech Question: How Long Does a Hard Drive Last?
Hard Disk Drives (HDD) have moving parts and consequently, a shorter lifespan than other options. One often quoted study found that 90% of HDDs last 3 years before failing, and 80% last 4 years. It is recommended that an HDD be replaced after 4 years, but there are no guarantees. That’s why it’s so important to back up your data regularly, and replace your hard disk drive(s) if you have an older computer.
The other primary option is a Solid State Drive (SDD). These drives avoid the use of moving parts and are a type of flash memory, very similar to a USB stick drive. With normal use, it’s been suggested that SSD could last 50 years or more!
Solid state drives are more expensive than hard disk drives for the same size drive, but the prices are becoming more reasonable all the time.
We’d be happy to discuss your hard drive options with you.
