Disk corrupted!

Some time ago I set up a portable development environment on a little 2,5″ external hard disk. I put on it MSYS + MinGW + MSYS Developer Tool Kit (that contains ssh client), Eclipse, workspace, ant, maven2, several versions of JDKs etc.etc… everything configured to work portable.
All this stuff was inside a TrueCrypt container file, and I always mounted it on drive letter Z: so even moving the disk on different laptops, absolute paths worked properly. Everything was working amazingly since today: disk got data corruption.
I also experienced data corruption on USB pen drives, sometime. That in plus are very slow.
Do you think that those storages are less reliable due to the fact that being portable are more subject to shocks? Or the hot mount/dismount can crash them?
I am thinking to buy another external 2,5″ hard disk very soon. Maybe my disk is getting old.

Why hardware is so fragile…? :-(
