I recently went through my pile of computer components (dusty garbage) and found that I got a lot of 5~7 years old sata drives lying around.
I found a couple of 400gb sata drives are from around 2007 - and they got an average Power-On Time of around 7 months.
Question Which SMART values from a the drive diagnostics table are the most important to predict an hardware failure?
Can't find any data on what's the industry average before a drive gets an hardware failure.
Thanks in advance
