It should be fine running for a good few years non stop...Just remember to backup things that are important and you shouldn't have a problem..

An external hard drive has a regular old 3.5 inch hard drive inside of it like you would find inside any computer. So yeah, it should be fine hooked up all the time.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
