I always worry these days with those loud long grinding noises that games like Lemmings made. These are 20 year old drives, they're fragile!
Back then it didn't bother me much. It seemed a bit slow when waiting that whole long minute for Workbench to boot up, but I wasn't yet used to the horrors of cranking up Windows (go and put the kettle on). Nowadays the thought of an OS starting in 1 minute even from SSD is a dream.
