    Backblaze has announced its latest Hard Drive reliability statistics.

    These may be of interest to those who have spinning platter HDs in their Mac or purchase same as External Hard Drives for additional storage.

    Thanks Ian. I do wish that Backblaze would include stats for smaller drives. The largest spinning drive that I use is 1TB and it's external rather than internal. I'm determined to buy only SSDs from now on even though they are more costly.

    Time to turn in for me. You fellows on the other side of the Atlantic are 6 hours ahead.
