    No matter how much you pay for a harddrive they will fail.

    No smr no mtc (the drive doesn't do weird shingled writing, doesn't write cache to other parts of the platters and move it later).

    I don't know what seagate is trying to do with other drives they make that are newer than this, but smr belongs in archive drives (and maybe not even there).

    Possible smr/mtc read paths:direct from the plattersfrom the platters (cached in ram)from the platters (cached somewhere else on the platters)from the platters (cached in flash memory if drive includes flash)possible smr/mtc write paths:to the platters (but first we need to read* up to ~256mb and write* it somewhere else, then write* it all back with the changes)cached (and maybe consolidated for a more efficient write) in ram, then written to the platters (possibly needing to do the above line)cached (and maybe consolidated for a more efficient write) in flash*, then written to the platters (possibly needing to do the first line)data sitting on the drive (platters) which you aren't changing at all may be read*, re-written* somewhere else, then re-written* back to where it was.

    Each of these reads/writes is subjected to the 1 bit per 10^14 read/write error rate every time.

    Not sure if it was due to the forced win 10 upgrade where the hd was corrupted of not.
