But it's not because hard drive is subject to comparatively rapid breakdown. It's because of the people that use them. Hard drives, as the dynamic storage devices, are easy to delete files in different ways. And you didn't back up your data, did you? Panic? Don't. Actually, if that happen, the first thing you have to do is stopping saving any data on that drive of your Mac.
