I have a plethora of the old-school 8TB WD RED and the unofficial EMAZ versions with the same firmware. Many are from 2017 and a few from 2018, mostly with 300-1200 hours on the SMART clock and have been in room temperature storage since the viral disease. If I wipe data is there any reason not to reuse these drives simply due to age? The newer small drives like this are noisier, don't make use of the He, and/or suffer from the shingles. I hate to throw out 160TB if they are expiring.
