My two USB drives have started to eject themselves, suddenly and without any warning. Why?
I wonder whether the most important requirement in power management is to obtain an Energy Saver rating, rather than function in the way that we expect.
There is now a better way to estimate likely hard disk life than Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF).
How can I make the files on a dead hard disk unreadable before I discard it?
How much free disk space should I keep on two external hard drives, a 2 TB and a 250 GB?
Is there anything else I can try to salvage a dead external hard drive, and how should I replace it?
Can I install a 2.5” SATA hard disk in my Mac Pro and use that disk to augment the existing volume used as my Time Machine backup?
Would movement of my iMac damage the hard drive, or should I batten my desk to the wall?
Most of the computer-like devices that you use now store their data on solid-state disk (SSD) rather than traditional hard disk (HD) components. Are they also the best way ahead for regular computers?
Disk errors and crashes may be terminal, rescuable, or fully repairable. Understanding their nature enables you to choose how to tackle them.
