    Massive Google hard drive survey

    Google Hard Drive Survey - Endgadget

    Some interesting stuff in this report from Google Inc.

    "Resuts point to "drive manufacturer, model, and age" as being the primary factors that induce hard drive failure""

    "We find, for example, that after their first scan error, drives are 39 times more likely to fail within 60 days than drives with no such errors."

    They won't name & shame until the bidding war for adverts on the page is over. Sceptic? Me? Aww come on!
