I have a 250 GB Seagate HD, IDE type, 72rpm running on a 24/7. and Its already 3 years old, it is used to backup large data, until now still no signs of bad clusters. Given the age and use of my HD, should I be more cautious that It might fail anytime? shoud I replace it even though its still working?
By the way I am also using DVD's to backup files, i'm just concern to my HD's lifespan. Is there a typical lifespan of HD depending on their size (GB)?
theoretically, HDs should last 20 years more til it should bog down, but its safe to assume we're replacing hardware every 3-5 years or so to keep up to date. i used to survive an 8-year Seagate 500mb til i failed to use it due to an upgrade.
its also about time that the HD's motors and heads would develop trouble like wearing out of joints and cylinders and not really about bad clusters detected.
you may opt to run it as Slave from a newer Master til it dies on you. if it still logs some more miles, then its a good quality HD HDs are cheap nowadays
size dont matter, its the make quality that counts there
biking is a blessing it keeps us fit, we spend less for more fun, it keeps us away from sin... but best of all--it enhances your social skills... kaya SOSYALAN NA!!! Social Climber, proud and happy

anthrax76: strand, they diss mtb users on what grounds? dahil dapat pang bundok? riding speed? nakakalat sa kalsada?
Feb 10, 2019 8:07:54 GMT 8
strand: anthrax76 dapat pang bundok. same sh*t, diff day. started off when somebody bought an RS Tk30 fork. pero di naman daw gagamitin sa bundok. may pic kasi sya sa road.

strand: what can the guy do, if for example, wala naman syang truck get to the trails? kung padyak to trails siya? etc. some people, really.
Feb 10, 2019 20:26:09 GMT 8
anthrax76: yeah well, sa mga ganyan ang sagot ko lang is 1) enough ang kalsada ng maynila para matagtag ka parang sa trail 2) tama ka, eh by the time makarating ako sa trails, laspag na ako dahil wala akong sasakyan maliban sa bike.

anthrax76: 3) affordable transport ang mtb vs rb.

strand: At para sa limited ang budget, mtb is the more practical option for recreational riding. Masaya nga pag maraming naka-mtb.

simplej0ys: pakitaan mo pa ng mas maraming picture ng MTB riders na nasa kalsada para gumanda araw niya! hahahaha

konablack: the problem with most roadies i encounter on the streets is that they will try to race with you as much as possible (target practice kumbaga), i just encountered one this morning, nung nalagpasan nya ako, sabi nya "holi", saka ko lang nagets na 'huli' pala
Feb 11, 2019 11:08:56 GMT 8
konablack: di rin natin masisisi yun iba kasi may mga MTB users na may attitude, walang harmony sa kalsada, karamihan nag uunahan
Feb 11, 2019 11:20:54 GMT 8
strand: OK. Di ko pa na-experience yung may biglang kumarera sa akin when I am on the road. weird siguro ng feeling? ...ay teka, mabagal pala ako. hahaha, auto-loser.

gat3keeper: Peeps .. oks pa ba bumili 26er na old model ?
Feb 12, 2019 6:58:29 GMT 8
konablack: gat3keeper for me it's a yes as long as it serves its purpose, ang titignan mo lang ay yung possibility ng upgrading kasi magiging mahirap mag hanap ng parts if ever mag aupgrade ka na (just my opinion)
Feb 12, 2019 7:05:33 GMT 8
anthrax76: gat3keeper, as long as may available parts pa sa area mo (tires, tubes, rims) all is good. hassle lang naman kapag walang mabili.
Feb 12, 2019 9:05:47 GMT 8
gat3keeper: Sir Anthrax, nawala na yung folding bike thread?
Feb 14, 2019 11:28:12 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...actually dehins ko alam kung meron ngang thread
Feb 16, 2019 22:17:38 GMT 8
anthrax76: wala sa search?
