Since you wanted critical :P. I only got to slide two so far. I
wouldn't say that hard drives fail with *absolutely* no warnings. I
have never had a hdd fail with no warnings, its just that I always
ignored the warnings assuming they were just weird system faults. E.g.
copy jobs that crash and work the next time, system failing to boot
for no apparent reason and work again, ... subtle things like that
more or less happen every time i had a disk fail,  yet I somehow
managed to ignore them every single time.
