That can't be true even old old hard drives from back in the day could do 40k hours easily. That thing will spion 100k hours to be honest unless it dies before that. 🙈🤞✝😷
 
It's just telling you that the drive is rated for continuous use, ie 8760 hours per year.

Realistically, we expect that the usage time for HDDs in the desktop environment is, on average, about 2400 power-on hours/year, corresponding to about 6.5 hours/day. Our expectations for the nearline or mission-critical environments are that the drive will be used 100% of the time (24 hours/day) resulting in 8760 power-on hours/year.
