12What happens when SSD wears out?
However, many SSDs are now using wear-leveling algorithms to ensure that space is being used as efficiently as possible.
SSDs and HDDs will have a life span of about six years, depending on how you use them. Although HDDs may have more storage space than most SSD models, they are still fragile due to their moving parts and are more vulnerable to damage. On the other hand, each P/E cycle degrades the SSDs, implying that there is no point in which the SSD will no longer function.
If you’re looking for new storage solutions, make sure you’re armed with the right information to make the correct decision.
