    10 year old 1T HDD


    Hello all, not sure if i should post this here I have a 10 year old 1T HDD which has severed me well, i have several partitions on that drive ( 3 partitions ) with a variety of games and videos and data spread across all 3 Partitions. i will be purchasing a new 2T HDD for storage, ( 51 pounds which i think is a good deal )
    i would like to move , copy or image all 3 partitions to the new HDD ( i will be making 3 partitions on the new HDD to match the old HDD. and i would like to also keep the specific drive letter on the old HDD to match the new HDD
    i was wondering what would be the best way to accomplish this ?

    Thanks in advance

  2. HDD Corrupt ?

    Hi,

    There are many possible reasons this issue is happening. We'd like to ask few questions below:

    • What is the brand name of you Hard Disk Drive?
    • How old is the HDD?
    Since you already tried multiple troubleshooting steps, we suggest visiting the manufacturer's website. Find and download a hard drive diagnostic software to help resolve the issue.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

    Time to replace 9 year old HDD and 7 year SSD?

    Pretty much what was suggested above, keep using it and maybe make some backup's every now and then.
    HDD's can go for quite a long time, I have a few that are 17, 20 & 21 years old (not continuous usage of course) and they still run just fine, albeit very slow and the latter two have as much storage as an SD card. *Stick Out Tongue 10 year old 1T HDD :p
