Hard Drive Failed for 2nd Time

My physical hard drive failed for the 2nd time in as many years.  That brings the total of lost hard drives to 5 for me personally.  All on island.  I lost plenty of drives on the mainland but this is crazy.  It was my only non-ssd drive I had left.  In fact, compared to how many drives I have replaced over the past year alone probably has crept up to a dozen.

I just don’t think hard drives do well in this heat and humidity.  The SSDs appear to hold up much better.

Now I did replace my failed 750 GB drive with another non-ssd drive but I was in need of one in a pinch and had nothing bigger than 120 GB lying around.  Prices continue to drop on SSD and at some point I will move this one over to SSD.
