How long should I expect my hard drive to last?

I have seen many brands of hard disks fail within months of being brand new. I have seen many high end hard disks with reputable names fail. The question is when it will fail.

I would not give a hard disk an average life span of more than 2 years reliability. Depending on file checks completed against the drive within that time will only help prolong the life of the drive. I will not bad mouth any particular drive because they all fail at some point so make sure to back up your data to a different media regularly.
