My System Specs

Default

Typical lifespan of a hard drive is somewhere between 6 seconds and 60 years... Impossible to say. Unless it's been roughly handled, odds are that it would be fine for a few more months. However, best bet is to make regular backups whether it is to another drive, cd, DVD, BD etc.
