My external hard drive is 5 years old and working just fine. But if what you are saying is true then I am having a backup.

I probably have a few living on borrowed time, especially the case with my old box (PC). I'm trying to be more proactive in having backups and archiving them someplace even if it is a lesser resolution (pics)
