Kinda have a list of general questions for hardware selection.

Should I go for an HDD or an SSD for storage where the drive will be powered off for months if not years?

Is it better to do a RAID 1 configuration with an SSD or an HDD? I’ve heard it’s a headache to recover data from an SSD.

If there are weird sounds on the HDD, like periodic squeaking noise, but the drive is operating as normal, should I be concerned?

How often should I replace my HDD over the years?

Any suggested software (preferably free) to retrieve data before resorting to a professional? I’ve heard bad things about EaseUS and would like suggestions to other options.
