Hardrives don't normally go bad sitting on a shelf. Even if they do, there is a plan B, in that there are companies that specalize in getting the data off them. I've been going through some drives that were made in the late 80's, checking to see if there is any data on them that I don't already have elsewhere. It's kind of a pain.

Hmmm, so you are saying back everything up you want and then unplug the harddrive and put it up on a shelf? Might be a good idea! Staples told me the info could be taken off my failing drive but it would probably cost about 1,000.00 to do it. I lucked out and was able to get them saved myself.
