how to see signs of hard drive failure
I have a desktop that is now 5 years old. That got me thinking, how much longer can i expect my hard drive to last me? I've read that about the average life span is 5 years.
I have speed fan installed on my computer and it says that my drive is healthy and with a 96% performance. But does that really man anything? Can a drive that comes up as healthy die the next day or will I see something else other than "healthy" on hard drive monitoring programs before I should start worrying?
