Report claims Seagate and Hitachi hard drives are more likely to fail

Losing essential data from a hard drive failure can be one of the most frustrating experiences of your life. But, there might be a way to identify if a drive will really fail or last forever. Secure Data Recovery, according to Blocks and Files, found that the average failed hard drive lasted about two years and ten months before dying.

This number was taken from the average operating time of numerous failed hard drives that data recovery specialists received from customers. The specialists excluded drives that failed due to unpredictable events and only kept drives that failed due to normal read and write operations. Select drives were made by six manufacturers, including Western Digital, Hitachi, Seagate, Toshiba, Samsung, and Maxtor.
