Question about Computers & Internet
If you are referring to the files inside the hard drive, then as long as it is not defective, it will last a very long time. Most hard disks can retain data indefinitely .
As to your concern with the laptop's charger/power supply jack, it is very possible that the connector simply lost its connection inside the motherboard. This could be easily remedied by re-soldering the two (2) pins of the said jack. What might be a challenge is the opening of the laptop to expose the underbelly of the motherboard.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
