The hard drive in your computer is only one of several mechanical parts, and over time these parts can wear out. Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of your hard drive including: heat, shock, and usage so individual results will vary, but just how long do them last?
Most hard drive manufactures offer warranties ranging from 1 to 5 years. The longer the manufacturer's warranty, usual, is related to build quality and price. As with all electronics sometimes they just fail.
