The Truth About SSD


Solid State Drives are definitely the future of storage. The benefits of SSD are numerous. However, there are several disadvantages with this technology. Here is a list of the Pros and Cons of SSD.


  • Fast
  • No Moving Parts equals less mechanical failures
  • Low Power Use
  • Silent
  • Ability to endure shock, vibration, temperature variations, altitude
  • Small Form Factor
  • Flash SSD have 2X Density of Hard Drives


  • Expensive
  • Low Capacity
  • Encryption Issues
  • Limited Life
  • No Defragmentation

The major disadvantage to SSD technology is chances of recovery when these drives fail. Even the top Data Recovery companies in the world are recovering less than 50% of the Solid State Drives sent into them. In fact, very few Data Recovery firms even recover data from SSD.  At 24 Hour Data, we have seen a huge increase in the number of SSD recoveries in the last 6 months.

If you plan to buy SSD or if you have this technology already in place think twice about your Backup Solution. In corporations large and small we most often see that laptops slip through the cracks with data backups. Laptops are also where most Solid State Drives are being used due to size, durability, and low power consumption.
