Unfortunately, hard drive failures occur more often than you might think. Often, there are warning signs your hard drive is on its way out. There are a number of sounds it might make, including beeping noises, clicks, or grinding sounds. Other times it will fail without any warning at all.
A number of things can cause a hard drive to fail. If a hard drive is exposed to a strong magnetic field, malware, moisture, or extreme temperatures, any of these can cause a failure. The most common cause is when the hard drive’s head physically crashes into the store data.
If a hard drive fails within the first year, it is likely do to a defect that occurred in while manufacturing it in the factory. If it makes it out of that first year, it can last for many years. But at the three year mark, the failure rate percentage increases drastically.
