That's no problem. I've got an external 200gb drive that I've had for well over a year now (closer to 2 years) and I've turned it off maybe 3 times.
It will die when it's ready to (give you something to look forward too huh!
). It should only be "spinning" when it's being accessed by Windows (or whatever program is using it), so it's not spinning all the time, so it shouldn't harm anything at all by having it on all the time.
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
