  1. Every time a hard drive is written to (& that includes formatting, defragmenting & secure wiping) it increases the amount of wear-and-tear on the drive platters and head mechanism. Over time, that wear-and tear will get to a level where the drive will fail.

    However, all hard drives will fail eventually - it's inevitable. But unnecessary writing operations or writing to it too frequently (like defragmenting too often) will accelerate the wear on it and can therefore cause the drive to fail sooner rather than later.
