In my case, I was being diligent and backing up things to one of those
external USB drives, and the external drive turned out to be a lemon,
while the originals are all quite fine. I didn't buy an unusual brand
of disc, either, it was a Seagate. I'd always been impressed by them,
before. On the other hand, every Western Digital drive I had, and
friends, lasted little more than a year or two.
