The hard drive reliability report lists three drives that have never failed

Backlight Publish Yesterday it released its drive statistics report for the second quarter of 2021. Although the failure rate has increased overall, the company found that none of the three hard drives failed. But don’t use it as a ringing (or will it spin?) endorsement. There are some important caveats regarding the reliability of these specific drives.

The problematic models are Seagate ST6000DX000, HGST HUH721212ALE600 and Western Digital WUH721816ALE6L0. Among them, only Seagate hard drives have been used for more than two years, and the company only collected statistics on 886 of them. This pales in comparison to the 177,935 drives examined in this report.
