When purchasing a hard drive, most people look at the storage available, the speed, the price, and the warranty. The manufacturer’s warranty will be the last thing on your mind if there is a major hard drive failure. To put it in very simple terms, everything on your hard drive could be inaccessible. Everything on the hard drive could be gone.
Of course, there are recovery services that might be able to save some of the data. However, there are no guarantees and, whether successful or not, such services are expensive. And you will want your files, pictures, music, and all that data on your hard drive. You will be looking for all those registration numbers for those software programs that you use. You will not be thinking much about that warranty.
Avoid this disaster. It is possible to safeguard yourself from this catastrophe.
You have heard people say it repeatedly: “do a backup of your data.” Yes, do a backup of your hard drive. It is not difficult. That hard drive you are using will fail. It happens to everyone. Hard drives do not last indefinitely. Problems with the hard drive are a matter of “when,” not “if.”
