7 Years later - still running

Summary: After nearly 7 years I am getting an occasional "ticking." It's time to retire this external drive, and save my data before it is too late. But I am pleasantly surprised this hard drive lasted so long. I have written, deleted, and over written many times over the 1 TB capacity.
Pros: - Bought this in August 2009, almost 7 years ago - Used almost daily
Cons: - Had to die eventually. Not really a "con," just a fact of hard drives. it's not there yet, but early signs are starting to show.
Summary: This 500GB drive has worked just like expected from day one, is super portable and after a few years shows no signs of wear. I slip this little 500GB drive into the pocket of my laptop case and bring it with me as a travel backup.
