My System Specs


no, the fact is that consumer grade hard drives are not built to the same standard as enterprise hard drives. Consumer grade hard drives will randomly fail WAY more often than enterprise hard drives.

if the hard drive is big or small the platters still spin at the same speed, and the read-write heads still sweep back and fourth along the steel platters.
