It seems to be proximity to me, rather than ownership by me, that breaks hard drives; the external drive at work onto which I had laboriously copied 41 DVDs of crystallography images gave up the ghost this week. That's the third this year. I suppose I own about nine drives and they last about five years so I should expect two deaths a year, but I have friends ([livejournal.com profile] damerell, [livejournal.com profile] nojay) with as many drives who seem to curse their failure less often.

Amazingly and unprecedentedly, this one was within warranty, and Seagate should send a replacement before the decade is out.
