In working for years with computers I have to say hard drives are very volatile. If I got more than 5 years or so out of a consumer hard drive up until the past few years I considered it good. Its the only part of your computer (besides fans) that has consistently moving parts.

But its true I do feel like its 1995 again with all this juggling of free space. Its pretty annoying actually
