Amusingly enough, I just went through six 9gb drives of various makes
tonight myself - at least 4 of which I know were working when last
powered on (within the past year).

Luckily I've got a decent supply of smaller (4.5 - 18GB) drives
stashed away, but at this rate they might not last anywhere near as
long as I'd thought...  If you need a few let me know.
