Your external drives only last a year or two? Are you keeping them spun up all the time or something? I make a backup and then take 'em offline and put 'em away (in a safe or something). They never wear out that way. Hard drives are typically rated for thousands of hours of use (if active). I don't think I've ever had to replace a USB hard drive because of a hardware failure. I've got some here that are several years old and they work fine.
