How to Protect Your SSD Hard Drive from Loss of Data


SSD Recovery is a complicated process that requires special equipment to access information from  solid state memory chips.One of the problems inherent in solid state disk drives, especially when they are used in large company servers and in RAID servers, is the “write endurance,” or how many times data can be written to a particular block without that block failing. Granted, the write endurance of SSD memory is still more than millions of cycles and about 3 times that of a regular hard drive (depending on the manufacturer) — but SSD memory is not invincible.The experts at Storage Search wrote about this problem a few years ago, noting, “…Flash [SSD memory] has an intrinsic limit on the total number of write cycles to a particular destination.”The author went on to say that, in the years following publication of that article, manufacturers have developed technology to significantly increase the write endurance of an SSD harddrive. Today’s SSD memory boasts a write endurance of up to 5 million cycles and that number continues to increase. In fact, the same Storage Search article pinpointed the average write endurance of today’s SSD memory at 51 years.Even keeping this in mind, how can you best protect your system from corruption and, most importantly, prevent the loss of data on your SSD hard drive?- Make sure you select a “high endurance” SSD hard drive- Perform regular back-ups of the data on your SSD hard drive (Remember, one back-up is like no back-ups … always have 2 forms of back-up, with one stored in a remote location or on the Web)- Don’t attempt SSD recovery yourself- Keep the phone number for 24 Hour Data in your IT department to call us in the event of an emergency.
