Hi! I would like to ask how can i preserve my hdds to increase their life expectancy (if this possible...) cause i have tons of gigas of multimedia on them! I know i can also backup them for cds and dvds but there is always a chance of doing this, right? How many years could they last if they are well preserved???? So, is there any suggestion ? I have a 2 fan akasa thing on each hdd and dont know if this will help or not. I have got WDJ, Seagates, Maxtor and Hitachi. Thanks!
