Do you really want to risk losing all your data with a disk failure?

If your Mac, Windows PC or Laptop is 4 years or older, the hard disk drive has a 50% chance of total or partial failure at any moment. We recommend replacing a HDD after 4 years.

Apple imac, Macbook, Macbook Pro or Macbook Air
The same situation as the above applies to Apple computers. The reason that the optional “Apple Care” is only available for 3 years, is due the increased risk of parts failures (usually HDD's). If your Mac computer contains a HDD, we suggest you replace the HDD with an SSD after 4 years, or replace with a new HDD.
- HDD's have a 2 year guarantee
- SSD's have a 3 or 5 years guarantee or longer
If the HDD is 4 years or older make sure everything is fully backed up using time-machine and have a new drive fitted ASAP. You are living on borrowed time.
