10 years ago I bought this 1Tb LaCie external hard drive to backup my files (the HDD is a Hitachi HCS5C1010CLA382). It only started to show some failures recently after being up 24/7 through all those years. It was connected to my RPi to handle all the home backups.

I choose to transfer everything to a new (but second-hand) Samsung T5 SSD. No need to use an extra power plug, the SSD only takes 0.4W. I hope that I'll be able to use it for another 10 years!

    Recently I discovered an old 120GB WD from 2007 that still works! Some HDs really just keep going.
