I removed a 1TB Hard Drive from old laptop that I want to use as and external storage device because I hear that Flash Drive wear out faster that a Hard Drive. This Hard Drive isn't working and I thought that I could reformat it to get it to work. According to the label the Hard Drive is a Toshiba MQ01ABD100 and it says that it is from 2013. What do you think? Is it worth it of too dangerous to worry about?
being some 8 years old it is out of warranty and not worth keeping if you are starting to have issues with it
i would replace it
