    SSD read write concern


    I have a 512gb ssd from Samsung.
    I sometimes record with FBX game recorder.
    But then the recordings dont meet my standards and i delete the files.
    Does this do read writes to my ssd? Will this damage my ssd? the files are a bit big, like 500mb-2gb sometimes.

    An SSD will last at least 10 years, unless you drop it or something. If your SSD fails after years of using, you can bet that you have wrote and rewrote Petabytes of information to and from that drive.

    thank you.

    EDIT: wow, a petabyte is a lot of data...

    Yeah it's a lot of data. A regular HDD won't last that long. The moveable parts inside it will wear out eventually. My extra storage drive is a 4TB HDD. I wish I could find an SSD that has that amount of space, but those are expensive.

    You can use Crystal Disk Info or Samsung Magician (if you have Samsung SSD) to check health of your SSD.
