Windows 10: SSD reliability in the real world: Google's experience

    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

    Once large capacity SSD's come down to the same or cheaper price than current HDD's then there is NO REASON why you should be scare of using them. That days isn't quite here yet -- although it's great to see how many people are using SSD's for their OS.
    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.

    I don't see much sense in the statement: SSD age, not usage, affects reliability.
    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.

    The first SSD I bought was an Intel 510 - 120 GB SSD when I built my system 5 years ago. That SSD started life with Win 7 Ult, upgraded to Win 8.0 then 8.1 and is still running the Win 10 Insider Previews with only 94% Media Wearout with 3.01 TB host writes.
    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".

    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.
