Google Turns Hard Drive "Facts" into Urban Legend

From StorageMojo » Google’s Disk Failure Experience, the subjects of hard drive wear from heat, age, workload, hard drive specs, and software monitoring of your drive are covered. It is a review of Google's report on "Failure Trends in a Large Disk Drive Population".

Having used many hard drives over the years, the smallest ones of which went out of service for me in the past few years due to the advent of broadband, megapixel images and humongous email attachments (the drives were too small for storage of important stuff) -- I'm always interested in things that will help alleviate my paranoia about hard drive failure. I found the summaries at StorageMojo very interesting. Now to find time to eventually read the whole 13 page PDF... :p
