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



Preben,

You haven't!

The 300,000 hrs is the MEAN or AVERAGE time before failure. So some may fail
after 1 day, but if the failure curve follows a normal distribution (it may
not) then some drives will last far longer than 300,000 hrs, 100 yrs or
more!

Let me see if I've got this right:

If you run 300.000 HDs 24/7 for 300.000 hours (34 years),
then, on statistical average - in 2037 - you won't have
one single drive left that still functions? Mindbuggling
stuff!
