    Hi there
    The only SSD I've lost in around 6 years of using them was when I left one in a pocket in a pair of jeans and then put the jeans into a washing machine.

    I didn't actually dare try using it -- it didn't look too bad but I just slung it away.

    Otherwise never a problem with SSD's --- come to think of it too I haven't really had any problem with HDD's either -- probably 2 in the whole time I've been using computers (> 25 years). In any case decent BACKUP resolves any failure whether HDD or SSDS.

    Cheers

    It will be many years before that happens.

    I'm expecting something like ReRAM to be readily available, before Flash based SSDs become as cheap as HDDs.

    Given the dodgy way SSD memory cells work, I'm not surprised at all (there was an earlier story about SSDs losing data if they are unpowered too long).

    Ironically, they probably last longer if they are "lightly" used.

    How are you getting such a small quantity of write operations?

    When I'm using the Internet, my page file size is constantly oscillating (up and down by ~1MB/s).
    I currently have 9 GB of RAM spare too.

    Hi there

    Be careful though when downloading -- don't click the wrong arrow - these sites can be a little confusing unless you watch carefully before pressing the download button.

    The tool though is a good one.

    Major Geeks is quite safe place to download from just got to read program description as they warn if there's any added "feature" with it, something like "Add Supported".

    W10 Pro + W10 Preview

    First purchased a Crucial C300 128gb in 2010, cost £230 with cloning software.
    Have used this on every insider update after many years service prior to that, with never any problems.
    Astonishing to think how much SSD,s have reduced in price since they first became available.
