Theres one good free webbased software that can analyze statistically chances if your hd is dying before it actually dies. Cant remember the name though. I have used it for few years know.

I havent had one failed drive for 6 years. Allthough Ive sold all the old drives that have started to become problematic. I used to take dvd backups of all of my most imporant files but now Ive become too lazy to do that even.

One way to lengthen the life of drive is to lower its performance. There is one program for this too. It will be a percent or two slower but it will last much longer.
