The latest second quarter failure report of 170000 hard drives released. Cloud storage service provider Backblaze released the hard disk failure rate statistics report for the second quarter.
This statistics covers 177,935 mechanical hard drives under BB, with a total annualized failure rate of 1.01%.
The latest second quarter failure report of 170,000 hard drives was released: only three were spared.
The model with the largest number of hard disk problems comes from Seagate 4TB (ST4000DM000), but it should be noted that its power-on service time is also relatively long, and the overall annualized failure rate is 1.94%.
There are three hard drives that have not failed during the statistical period:
- Seagate 6TB (ST6000DX000),
- HGST 12TB (HUH72122ALE600)
- Western Digital 16TB (WUH72186ALE6L0).

On the whole, in the second quarter, the overall reliability of Western Digital and Western Digital’s HGST hard drives are still the most remarkable.
In addition, BB also compiled a table of hard disk failure rates from 2013 to the present, and concluded that Toshiba’s 16TB, Western Digital 14TB and HGST’s 12TB/4TB are the three hard drives with the lowest annualized failure rate.
