Should i replace my ssd?

JoshSigner
 Share

So i have had this ADATA SP580 for just over a year, i have used this in many pc's including as of right now my main one and i have used this for testing

 

so it's had a lot of windows installs on it i'd say atleast 26 installs of windows

 and i made a post last night on what to upgrade and what should i trash or keep

and someone said to replace the ssd cause it might be near the end of its life i was a little confused on why he would say this, something about write cycles and read cycles 

 

i have no idea what thats means, and if its short term for ''my ssd dying'' i don't believe it cause 

my ssd hasn't got any slower since day 1 and hasn't been a issue


So like is it dying

should i keep it like i'm confused

Every SSD has a finite amount of writes that it can make to each piece of NAND flash on the PCB. Due to the way that SSDs handle memory writing, that's just how it is. Assuming you didn't have much else other than windows on the drive, it should be fine. However, the more you fill up an SSD, the faster it will die. That is why it is recommended you leave some extra space on it when storing data. That is what said person means by "write cycles".

67 used? 67 free? Either way that doesn't mean much to me, as I can't tell you the health of your drive. The software mentioned above is sufficient enough for that.

You have 67gb Free out of the available 120gb drive. 

 

Every HDD/SSD has a finite number of read/write cycles. Nothing lasts forever :) But your drive is still good. I believe ADATA has a 3 year warranty anyway :)

It's so funny i was looking up reviews on this drive a week ago and a bunch of them were failing but for some reason mine didn't fail

SP 580 120 GB has endurance of 70 TBW (Terabytes written).

 

Crystal Disk Info will tell you amount of Total Host Writes, which will tell you how many terabytes out of 70 have you used up.

Have a look around on the web and see what people are getting lifetime wise

 

Its like a car engine for example. Could go bang at 1k miles or 100,000 miles depending on many factors 

 

No need to panic mate :) That's what warranty is for :)

Then you don't have anything to worry about.

 

The only reason to replace the drive is if you need more capacity, or it dies of some other reason other than NAND wear.

This particular one can do 70. Some other 120GB may only do 40-45, others may do upwards of 100 (mainly older MLC drives).

No, there's absolutely no need to replace it if it's still operating. You have to write an awful lot to a drive to have it fail, or have it damn near full capacity it's whole life and constantly write to it, which will damage the cell it's writing to faster as it can't spread out the load...though most SSDs have over provisioning built in.

Not quite. It might last significantly longer, and likely will, as they won't make a claim without having a certain degree of redundancy.

Smaller files are more harmful than larger files, but neither is really bad at all.

Warranty is all fine and dandy, but it will do nothing for the lost data ;)

That's why you should always back up your data ;)
