[filmscanners] Re: HD failure [was RE: keeping the 16bit scans}



Laurie,

Have you or anyone else seen data for MTBF due to recycling and MTBF due to
bearing or other failure? Presumably the manufacturers must know how many
startups/downs their drives will survive and how long the bearings will
last. If we had that info we could balance one against the other and see
where the optimum lies.

Bob Frost.

 When I say that turning a HD on and off has a negative
effect in terms of wear and tear similar to that which might take place if
one left the HD on all the time, I am speaking on the average and not to any
particular individual case.  Unless, you are prepared to say that turning a
HD on and off does not contribute to its wear and tear, the fact that you
personally only do so once a week is sort of irrelevant as a refutation of
my point. If you backed up or archived once a day every day, woulod you
still be able to clain that the wear and tear of turning the drive on and
off is less than keeping it on all the time during that week?
