I'd not give them the drive, if it was still working AND had data on it.
They could have the enclosure only.

This is why most hard drive warranties are less valuable than used toilet paper. They...

I didn't think they'd broken the 8tb barrier yet. So a "16tb" or "24tb" would just be multiple 8tb in a RAID or JBOD case.

I'm not really surprised. B&M stores, even Fry's and Microcenter, are...

Few people realize that HDD have very powerful magnets inside, as they've never dismantled a drive.

That said, I'd still not keep drives next to anything powerful, as magnetic field can do harm....

Is the "OEM bare drive" the internal drive only, or the enclosure version? If the latter, get it while it's available for under $50. It should burn good at 8x, maybe 12x. I have one of the internal...

These days, honestly, you'll probably have to get a not-quite-legal version. Find somebody trustworthy that has an original install disc you can copy. Torrents have copies, but there's also the risk...

Yes. :2cents:

This is why we're all locked into Windows XP, regardless of the hardware we're running. Thankfully XP runs on almost anything, even including new hardware for sale today. Whether or...

5 years - PCIe will probably still be the standard (look at PCI, having been here since the 90s)
10 years - probably a legacy slot on some motherboards

That's a long time to look forward. In...

I looked online. I have the Promise Promise Ultra133/Ultra100 TX2, and they officially work with only XP and Vista.
Unofficially, it may work with Win7 x62.

Drive enclosures have always been very hit-or-miss. The initial Firewire enclosures were a nightmare, from what I can remember, and latter USB2 were not much better. The thing I remember most is that...

I also doubt bearing/physical wear, given the details.

It may be a disc that is not 100% flat, which happens, and causing it to vibrate more. And not all drives were tolerant of vibration. Pioneer...
