My HDD has been acting weird lately. A while ago, it would be corrupted after a couple months of inactivity and cause me to format it. Now, i see this error message.

 

I had this disk for 6 years. Is it normal for a hard disk drive to start failing this fast?

That drive was first available in 2011, so it might be much older than 6 years. Seagates had reliability issues around that time period, but I seem to recall those mostly affecting 3TB drives.

 

Regardless, it's happening. Get yourself a new 1TB SSD or HDD and clone it before it corrupts.

Depends on how much you use it, did you fill it up with data before formatting?

" a couple months of inactivity " was the drive removed from computer? It can lose magnetic properties and data...

Backup and format again... new drive wouldn't hurt

Yep, transfer all your data to a new drive ASAP.

I’ve only ever had 1or 2 do it.  Both mechanical. There are people here who use huge numbers of drives and run them hard 24/7.  Drives apparently fail on them all the time.  I am not one of them.  My limited experience tells me when a HD goes it goes pretty fast.  I had one that was failing hard, did the freezer trick on it and got one final spin to get my data off it.  I read when SSDs came out they were supposed to fail to a read only state. I’ve later read this is not the case.  Not sure about that one.  I understand they wear differently.  HDs wear by hours of use, and to some degree time.  SSDs wear by numbers of writes.  I’m not sure what the time effect is there.  The result is for casual users such as myself that don’t do many writes, SSDs can last a very long time, whereas for pro users they can go quite quickly.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
