Why Hard Disk Drives Fail. Part 3.

This post is overdue. Sorry.

Just now n Western Digital has announced that they will cut their warranty in half..

So hare hard drives now failing faster that before? It wound seem that way. Once I worked in Hard Drive Research a long time ago. Back then the objective was to make the media as perfect as possible. Apparently that goal has been abandoned.

The third reason why hard drives fail is this. The makers of hard drives are converting the business into a commodity.  They continue to make money only if the usesr want or need more new merchandise.

Seagate has also cut the warrenty. Se for yourself. Check out the link below.
