Things you should know about Solid State Drives – SSD

What is SSD?

SSD (solid-state drive) has no moving component and use less power supply of power to retain data.  They are different from hard drive, as they do not have any moving parts involved. It provides a more lasting and more secure way of storage.  An array of semiconductors are organized as a disk drive in SSD. It is far faster than a hard disk drive with an undeniable difference in performance. Many people assume that SSD could not fail or crash like the traditional hard drives but unfortunately, SSD’s also fails for a variety of reasons.

Importance of using SSD

The use of SSD has become a very important part of our daily life. It allows fast and random access to the data with less consumption of energy, moreover with no spin uptime. It is therefore used in more and more computer nowadays.  It has edges over the others as it has resistance to shock and drop. It is also noise-free and has much faster writing and reading speed.

However, the SSD also crashes sometimes and data loss becomes a common result. And if your SSD is connected to a computer which is infected with a virus it can also lead to loss of data. Data can also be deleted through human errors and system failure. An encrypted SSD is used by business or individuals to protect the data from unauthorized access, it could be either hardware-based or software encryption. It is also prone to suffer data loss scenarios like human error, computer virus or software corruption.

Functioning parts of an SSD

  •  NANDs – where the data is actually stored
  • Controller Chip – involved in translating the data from between computer and device
  • SATA Interface – connects to the reading device
  • Printed Circuit Board – holds all the electronics and helps distribute power throughout the drive

Some common data loss scenario in SSD:

  1. Damage of electronic component
  2. Controller chip failure
  3. Flash cell degradation by excessive overwrites
  4. Damage to PCB
  5. Damage to connectors
  6. A power surge or failure
  7. File corruption caused by Software or Operating System issue
  8. Accidental deletion

Each of these types of failures will require professional tools and experience to recover the data.

Things NOT to DO to SSD’s 

  • DO NOT take parts off the drive
  • DO NOT put the drive in the freezer or refrigerator
  • DO NOT defrag the drive
  • DO NOT run check disk on the drive
