Really, it's basic accounting and standard operating procedures, no
need for taping things to hard drives.

Buy a drive. Record drive model, serial number & purchase date along
with other details in spreadsheet. Save all receipts/invoices in
chronological order.

When drive fails, pull drive lookup purchase date by serial number in

If you're running a business, you really should be doing this for all
purchases in your inventory control system. It's not a bad idea to do
for home purchases, either as often warranty claims will require proof
of purchase.
