    I have Two of them (250Gb) . Best warranty on the market right now.
    And they can (unofficially) write petabytes before catastrophic failure!

    Has anyone had any luck with dictating to Cortana and having note delivered up to OneNote? I have tried on both computers and am not successful in this or the previous windows build.

    I don't think you are any kind of happy camper right about now! That stinks! But I have said on a few occasions even a clean install of Windows can come out pooched at times! Seen that too but not for some time. You got an odd one there, You might end up repairing it or simply slapping another fresh one on if you can't debug this one.


    Speaking for yourself I assume?! Some people like small drives while I run out of space too fast for anything less then 1tb! Go price a 1tb SSD and see what it runs for and you can almost put a new build together. Higher priced and your are limited on how many times you can write to one of those.

    On the other hand the two Sata II 1tb OS drives here are now 5yrs. old and still not a bad sector on either one. Can't say the same for the pair of Sata III 1tbs I replaced with a pair of 2tb RE Heavy Duty server type drives but one made a good storage drive on another less often used build while the other? Foobar land now! Some 250gb IDE drives now well over 10yrs. still working.
    Ah, you run Windows on the SSD and store your Data on an spinner. I keep my user folders on my second standard drive, Documents, Pictures, Music, ISO's etc. And run Windows from an SSD. I run two SSD's in my laptop, one for Windows and one for Data. I keep things lean on my laptop so I use a 128 GB for Windows and a 256 GB SSD for my Data drive.

    @Edwin, have you tried Secure Erasing your disk? This sets everything to 1(one is the bit position for a fresh SSD, the opposite of 0(zero) for a HDD.
    Securely Erasing An SSD

    Fortunately it is possible to erase most SSDs, though this is closer to a “reset” than a wipe. The “ATA Secure Erase” command instructs the drive to flush all stored electrons, forcing the drive to “forget” all stored data. This command essentially resets all available blocks to the “erase” state, which is what TRIM uses for garbage collection purposes.

    This command does not actually write anything to the drive. Instead it causes the SSD to apply a voltage spike to all available NAND in unison, resetting every available block of space in one operation. By doing this, you will use one whole program-erase cycle for your drive – a small dent in drive life, but still unnecessary unless you’re troubleshooting.

    Updated and the only obvious issue was a non-functioning Insider Hub which was fixed with a reinstall.

    I can open the Store, close the store, and open it again but it's live tile function won't work. Same thing with the weather tile, no live tile? Tile time works though. Photo's App live tile works too.

    Resizing the weather App seems to have fixed it. I went to the smallest size then back to large and it started working. Doing the same thing to the Store didn't fix it, but I turn it off anyway.

    I don't know what the heck was goin on!
    During installation, it wouldn't write to the SSD but, now it's holding data!
