  2. My last two blog posts were about expected drive lifetimes and drive reliability. These posts were an outgrowth of the careful work that we’ve done at Backblaze to find the most cost-effective disk drives. Running a truly unlimited online backup service for only $5 per month means our cloud storage needs to be very efficient and we need to quickly figure out which drives work. Because Backblaze has a history of openness, many readers expected more details in my previous posts. They asked what drive models work best and which last the longest. Given our experience with over 25,000 drives, they asked which ones are good enough that we would buy them again. In this post, I’ll answer those questions. Drive Population At the end of 2013, we had 27,134 consumer-grade drives spinning in Backblaze Storage Pods. The breakdown by brand looks like this: Hard Drives by Manufacturer Used by Backblaze As you can see, they are mostly Seagate and Hitachi drives, with a good number of Western Digital thrown in. We don’t have enough Toshiba or Samsung drives for good statistical results. Why do we have the drives we have? Basically, we buy the least expensive drives that will work. When a new drive comes on the market that looks like it would work, and the price is good, we test a pod full and see how they perform. The new drives go through initial setup tests, a stress test, and then a couple weeks in production. (A couple of weeks is enough to fill the pod with data.) If things still look good, that drive goes on the buy list. When the price is right, we buy it. We are willing to spend a little bit more on drives that are reliable, because it costs money to replace a drive. We are not willing to spend a lot more, though. Excluded Drives Some drives just don’t work in the Backblaze environment. We have not included them in this study. It wouldn’t be fair to call a drive “bad” if it’s just not suited for the environment it’s put into. We have some of these drives running in storage pods, but are in the process of replacing them because they aren’t reliable enough. When one drive goes bad, it takes a lot of work to get the RAID back on-line if the whole RAID is made up of unreliable drives. It’s just not worth the trouble. The drives that just don’t work in our environment are Western Digital Green 3TB drives and Seagate LP (low power) 2TB drives. Both of these drives start accumulating errors as soon as they are put into production. We think this is related to vibration. The drives do somewhat better in the new low-vibration Backblaze Storage Pod, but still not well enough. These drives are designed to be energy-efficient, and spin down aggressively when not in use. In the Backblaze environment, they spin down frequently, and then spin right back up. We think that this causes a lot of wear on the drive. Failure Rates We measure drive reliability by looking at the annual failure rate, which is the average number of failures you can expect running one drive for a year. A failure is when we have to replace a drive in a pod. This chart has some more details that don’t show up in the pretty chart, including the number of drives of each model that we have, and how old the drives are: Number of Hard Drives by Model at Backblaze The following sections focus on different aspects of these results. 1.5TB Seagate Drives The Backblaze team has been happy with Seagate Barracuda LP 1.5TB drives. We’ve been running them for a long time – their average age is pushing 4 years. Their overall failure rate isn’t great, but it’s not terrible either. The non-LP 7200 RPM drives have been consistently unreliable. Their failure rate is high, especially as they’re getting older. 1.5 TB Seagate Drives Used by Backblaze The Seagate Barracuda Green 1.5TB drive, though, has not been doing well. We got them from Seagate as warranty replacements for the older drives, and these new drives are dropping like flies. Their average age shows 0.8 years, but since these are warranty replacements, we believe that they are refurbished drives that were returned by other customers and erased, so they already had some usage when we got them. Bigger Seagate Drives The bigger Seagate drives have continued the tradition of the 1.5Tb drives: they’re solid workhorses, but there is a constant attrition as they wear out. The good pricing on Seagate drives along with the consistent, but not great, performance is why we have a lot of them. Hitachi Drives If the price were right, we would be buying nothing but Hitachi drives. They have been rock solid, and have had a remarkably low failure rate. Back at the beginning of Backblaze, we bought Western Digital 1.0TB drives, and that was a really good choice. Even after over 4 years of use, the ones we still have are going strong. We wish we had more of the Western Digital Red 3TB drives (WD30EFRX). They’ve also been really good, but they came after we already had a bunch of the Seagate 3TB drives, and when they came out their price was higher. What About Drives That Don’t Fail Completely? Another issue when running a big data center is how much personal attention each drive needs. When a drive has a problem, but doesn’t fail completely, it still creates work. Sometimes automated recovery can fix this, but sometimes a RAID array needs that personal touch to get it running again. Each storage pod runs a number of RAID arrays. Each array stores data reliably by spreading data across many drives. If one drive fails, the data can still be obtained from the others. Sometimes, a drive may “pop out” of a RAID array but still seem good, so after checking that its data is intact and it’s working, it gets put back in the RAID to continue operation. Other times a drive may stop responding completely and look like it’s gone, but it can be reset and continue running. Measuring the time spent in a “trouble” state like this is a measure of how much work a drive creates. Once again, Hitachi wins. Hitachi drives get “four nines” of untroubled operation time, while the other brands just get “two nines”. Untroubled Operation of Drives by Manufacturer used at Backblaze Drive Lifetime by Brand The chart below shows the cumulative survival rate for each brand. Month by month, how many of the drives are still alive? Hitachi does really well. There is an initial die-off of Western Digital drives, and then they are nice and stable. The Seagate drives start strong, but die off at a consistently higher rate, with a burst of deaths near the 20-month mark. Having said that, you’ll notice that even after 3 years, by far most of the drives are still operating. What Drives Is Backblaze Buying Now? We are focusing on 4TB drives for new pods. For these, our current favorite is the Seagate Desktop HDD.15 (ST4000DM000). We’ll have to keep an eye on them, though. Historically, Seagate drives have performed well at first, and then had higher failure rates later. Our other favorite is the Western Digital 3TB Red (WD30EFRX). We still have to buy smaller drives as replacements for older pods where drives fail. The drives we absolutely won’t buy are Western Digital 3TB Green drives and Seagate 2TB LP drives. A year and a half ago, Western Digital acquired the Hitachi disk drive business. Will Hitachi drives continue their excellent performance? Will Western Digital bring some of the Hitachi reliability into their consumer-grade drives? At Backblaze, we will continue to monitor and share the performance of a wide variety of disk drive models. What has your experience been?

  3. Jon L. Jacobi Jan 14, 2014 3:00 AM There are lots of ways to obliterate sensitive data from of your drive: blast furnaces, degaussers (magnet field generators), sledgehammers, and secure-deletion software among them. These tools vary in effectivenessespecially as applied variously to hard drives, solid-state drives, and USB flash drivesand in the subsequent usability of the drive. For the sake of argument (and a more interesting article), lets assume youd like to preserve your drives functionality. This rules out violence and degaussing, which, though wonderfully effective and perhaps therapeutic, will render a drive useless. Excluding those options leaves you with a choice between software and software-combined-with-firmware methods. Free secure-erase utilities You can easily erase an entire hard drive or SSD by using any of the free utilities listed below. All invoke the secure-erase (sometimes called quick-erase) functions integrated into nearly every ATA/SATA drive produced since 2001. By and large its a great feature, but using it on older drives has some potential pitfalls, such as buggy implementations, an out-of-date BIOS, or a drive controller that wont pass along the commands. You might also need to fiddle with the ATA/IDE/AHCI settings in your BIOS, and in most cases the drive should be mounted internally. Parted Magics DriveErase utility makes it a breeze to perform secure erases on your SSDs and HDDs. Ive never had a problem secure-erasing a hard drive, but about a year ago I did brick a Crucial M500 SSD. (A firmware problem was probably responsible for this disaster; Crucial accepted the drive for return but never told me why the hardware had gone belly-up.) An enhanced secure-erase operation overwrites a drives housekeeping data as well as its normal user-data areas, but at least one vendor (Kingston) told me that its normal secure-erase routine does both, too. In the bad old days, running a secure-erase on some SSDs sometimes left data behind. Depending on the controller you use (notably SandForce), a secure-erase can be cryptographic or physical. If a drive is encryptedand some are by naturea secure-erase operation simply deletes the encryption keys, and then regenerates them. Without the original keys, the data is useless. A physical erase involves zapping the drives magnetic particles or NAND cells back to their default state. To entirely avoid the danger of erasing the wrong drive in a multiple-drive system, you should power down, disconnect all of the drives except the one to be erased, and then boot from a CD or a flash drive with the utility that does the job. I learned that lesson the hard way. Parted Magic is free to use, but it now costs $5 to download. Linux-based boot disc Parted Magic (formerly donationware, now free to use but $5 to download) has many features, including a file manager and a partition manager. Its handy for recovering data and operating systems, but it also has a link on its desktop to DiskEraser, a simple utility that will erase your drive or invoke the drives own secure-erase routine. Parted Magic is basic and lightweight, and it will work with any drive. In fact, several SSD vendors recommend itthough the recommendations date from when it was completely free. Little, command-line-lovely HDDerase.exe isnt for inexperienced usersits a bit too geeky and can require multiple steps. Another drawback of the app is that it cant bypass the frozen security stat that most modern drives employ to avoid malware erasures. But otherwise it invokes the secure-erase function just fine. It also comes in .ISO form, so you can burn it to disc or create a bootable flash drive from it. Note that the NSA sponsored HDDerase. Yes, the folks there like to secure as well as monitor data. Not to mention dip their hands into open-source security projects. Interpret that historical nugget as you will. Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test analyzes drive health and wipes unwanted data. Other vendors offer similar utilities. Most drive vendors provide a utility that can run S.M.A.R.T. diagnostics to check drive health, update firmware, and invoke a drives secure-erase routine. Odds are youll have to sign an agreement accepting that the tool may brick your drivebut hey, thats life in the big city. A short list of such utilities includes Data Lifeguard (from Western Digital), Drive Fitness Test (from Hitachi), OCZ Toolbox, Samsung Magician (SSD only), and SeaTools (from Seagate). For hard drives only: Block-overwrite software Block-overwrite software is more versatile than the secure-erase command because it lets you wipe data from a hard drive while leaving the operating system, program files, and other keepers intact. Unfortunately, this type of software is ineffective on SSDs or USB flash drives, and in many cases it cant wipe a hard drives HPA (Host Protected Area), which contains data about the low-level organization of the drive. That said, with high-powered algorithms and multiple passes, it will effectively render your data unreadable even when subjected to all but the most expensive forensic techniques. O&O Software's versatile SafeErase offers full and partial wipes, and it can find and delete common types of sensitive data. O&O SafeErase 7 ($30, free demo) is a jack-of-all-trades that can remove individual files and folders or erase entire partitions and disks. Like the previously reviewed PrivaZer, SafeErase scans your hard drive for possibly sensitive files, presents them to you for inspection (or you can elect to accept its assessment across the board), deletes them, and then wipes them. SafeErase did a good job of finding sensitive stuff while ignoring what I wanted to save, and it includes options on general types of files to look for. SafeErase can also wipe free space (erasing the tracks left by deleted files) and your entire computer (all drives, everything), though those options arent available in the demo version. But the $30 that O&O charges for those extra features may money well spent if you want to maintain a clean system. SafeErase is a nicely realized, versatile data-destruction program. MediaTools Wipe 1.2 ($99, free demo) is all about erasing a lot of hard disks with minimal fuss. Its designed for professionals who erase in bulk and will dedicate a (rather powerful) PC to the task. MediaTools Wipe 1.2 can handle up to 18 drives at once, all presented in a convenient console view. The program has its own wipe routines, but it cant invoke a drives own secure-erase routines. MediaTools Wipe lets you lock drives to prevent accidental erasures. MediaTools Wipe 1.2 has so many handy features (user-definable erase patterns, smart handling of bad blocks, and so on) that I cant mention them all here. Check out our review of the functionally equivalent version 1.1. Youll likely dedicate a PC to it, so the $49, single-seat technicians license will suffice for most situations. However, $500 single-site and $1000 multi-site licenses are available for the corporate crowd. The handy and free Eraser 6 utility deletes files, folders, and free space on a schedule. Its just the thing for users who want to maintain a minimal data presence on their PC. You must know what you need to erase, since Eraser 6 doesnt have automatic selection of sensitive data, as O&O SafeErase and PrivaZer do. But Eraser 6 does have a large array of government-level algorithms to choose from, and its super-simple to use. [email protected] KillDisk is available in a free Windows edition and a DOS (boot disc) edition. Either will overwrite free space or entire partitions with a single pass of zeroes. To obtain its more advanced features and algorithms, youll need the [email protected] KillDisk Pro, which costs $40 for Windows, and $50 with the pro-DOS version thrown in. KillDisk wont invoke a disks secure-erase routine, and it doesnt have any smarts: It doesnt detect and delete sensitive data such as browsing records, downloads, and program caches. [email protected] KillDisk presents a concise, information-laden view of the drives on your system. A DOS boot disc version is available as well. [email protected] KillDisk is very effective as far as it goes, but most users will be just as well off with the free Eraser 6or better off by paying less for a program that automatically selects and deletes sensitive data and wipes free space. Then again, if you run Piriforms CCleaner before KillDisk (or Eraser 6), youll have a very effective data-killing combo. Wiping SSDs and USB Flash drives Block-overwrite software isnt reliable with NAND-based media because of the voodoo that flash-storage controllers use when writing and deleting data. Im sorry I cant be more specific about what actually happens, but controller vendors are loath to talk about such things, lest they give away a competitive advantage. USB flash drives are convenient for everybody, including anyone trying to get data off one that isnt securely erased. That said, SSDs that support the TRIM command and run under a TRIM-supported environment (Windows 7 and 8, OS X 10.6.8 or better, Linux 2.6.28 or better, plus a modern BIOS and drive controller that pass on the command) should wipe deleted data continually. Note that I said should. Ideally (for security purposes) an SSDs garbage collection routines, invoked by the TRIM command, would quickly erase the NAND blocks formerly occupied by your file. The whole reason for TRIM is that NAND must be erased before being rewritten. If a drive runs out of clean, unwritten blocks and must erase previously used blocks immediately prior to writing to them, performance suffers drastically. Unfortunately, from what I could glean from data recovery experts such as strategic technical alliance manager Chris Bross of DriveSavers and SMB partner manager Leon Feldman of ACE Data Recovery, some disk vendors put off block erasures for long periods of time or until theyre forced to resort to them. Sad but true: You cant rely on housekeeping to remove data. Even sadder, there seem to be no utilities that will force the garbage collection. That seemingly simple solution has so far been ignored. USB flash drives dont support standard ATA secure-erase or TRIMso unless youre using a secure, encrypted type, youll need to contact the vendor for an erase utility. You could overwrite the entire drive or just free space with files. This will work to a point, butespecially on SSDssome blocks used in over-provisioning and marked as bad cant be copied over. They may retain data you want to erase. Data recovery companies can sift through raw data, block by block. In the end, the only sure way to remove all unwanted sensitive data from the free space on an SSD or USB flash drive while retaining the data you still want is to back it up (use imaging if an operating system is involved), secure-erase the drive, and then restore the desired data. Sigh. And when thats not enough... All the methods and programs Ive described will work great for the average user. That said, forensic data recovery technology has come a long way. Normal affordable methods wont counteract anything Ive discussed. But if you have a formula for cold fusion, or a trade secret that will topple the global economy overnight...go for the degausser, the hammer, and then the blast furnace. You cant be too sure. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2084961/kill-your-data-dead-with-these-tips-and-tools.html
