Agreed.  It's not a matter of 'if' a drive will fail, but a matter of 'when' it will fail.  You need to be prepared for 'when' it fails.

I've never had a drive failure, but I upgrade fairly frequently.  I have drives that are 15 years old that still work.  I've had drive controller on MB fail multiple times, but not in last 10 years.  But I agree, it's not if, it's when.  Back in the day the size of drives would change exponentially it seemed and you would upgrade more often, now 1TB has been around a while and I don't trust or need 2 TB but the day will come.  I do back up both SSD and Data drive daily.
