Two WesterDigital HDDs retire after 10-year occupation

I have two Western Digital HDDs, one is Caviar Black and another is Caviar Green serial, both capacities are 1TB. Because uncorrectable sectors occurred, it’s time for them to retire.

These two hard disks have been bought in 2010, which was for my third computer, also the first self-assemble PC. In this ten-year occupation, they’re mostly idle, because their Power On Hours count is just about 7000+ hours. I didn’t find the MTBF(mean time between failures) specification about the product serial, but I don’t think it should break down in so much short time using, or maybe just BAD luck.

It almost ruined a very important video of mine, which scared me badly.

I have a strong impression of a BBS post before I’ve decided to buy the Caviar Black 1TB disk, it said “the data stored on the Black disk could never lose.” Haha, it’s hard to say NEVER.

With these two HDDs in use, I mostly use them to do some photography work, video editing, and 3D animation. I’ve moved important data to a new NAS with 2 Seagate 8T disks. How do they doing? We’ll see.

And also it’s time to say goodbye to the old PC, thanks for working alongside me for so many years, from Yichang to Wuhan!
