4tb WD Passport (new model) is it bad to delete large folders sized (700gb)

Sorry to ask this question if it’s been answered elsewhere,

Is it bad for a hardrive (particularly the WD passport 4tb 2017 model) when you delete a large folder containing folders that total up to 700 Gb? I just want to know if this kind of portable drive can suffer in long term if you delete large volumes or is it just normal to do that (since it powers through the computer)

I deleted it and it took 2 minutes to delete the entire folder without a status bar so I assumed it was doing its work but not showing the “time remaining” so I don’t know if how it deleted it quickly.

I just want to know if it was bad for the drive

Thank you so much guys


Deleting large folders and files from a hard drive shouldn’t affect its performance.
