So I have this ancient play and store 3500 pacard and Bell hdd. It’s between 8 and 13years old (500gb). And I store pretty crucial data there. However this disc has only 300 working hours and no bad sector’s. How long should I expect it to last. And I know 321 backup philosophy before you comment. Thanks.

    If that’s the only copy of your data… It really can’t be that important to you.

    Even on a brand spanking new drive… I’d keep multiple copies
