Answer to: What is the cause of multiple hard drive failures?Ouch! Since I had around half-a-dozen or More hard drive COMPLETE FAILS over the years (we now have children) I went and bought some SSD drives for all my computers; and now they are not only FASTER, but the Laptops especially also NEVER have any problem being moved from laptop tray to desk. No more internal Scratching; no more FAILS. Its GREAT. BUY SSD`s and Demand that every laptop is installed with them from now on. .... ....Or live in regret (for example) at losing hundreds of pictures and vid clips or your little children growing up (&/or VALUABLE Documenting) as damaged hard-drives have irrecoverable data that would cost the price of a small car to get back.
Answer to: What is the cause of multiple hard drive failures?I am on my fourth hard-drive on a Tosh 3D Windows 7 x64 laptop in 18 months. I cannot understand why my 5-year old vista laptop is still working fine. 3 hard drives turned to a black mess and would not restore or boot or nothing. I wasted? HUNDREDS of hours trying to fix the problems and around 400 gigabytes of loss of data. If I didnt know any better? I would think it is a virus destroying the partitions from NTFS to RAW. I suspect the hard-drive repair companies rouge staff or pushing a virus or two out there. I am just passing through dudes...
