Thread-topic: [CRTech] SDD failure modes

Not drivers, an actual (small) software package that reports drive health, sets options, checks/updates firmware, monitors disk life/health, etc… With Samsung, it’s called “Samsung Magician”. Some other manufacturers offer similar software. No idea if it’s XP compatible or not. I have vague memories of such software also adjusting Windows’ disk management behaviors (such as turning off defragging, something you never want to do with an SSD), I don’t think XP makes the various adjustments on its own, but I could be wrong.

All my SSD installs have been Win 7 and up or MacOS, so no personal XPerience with earlier versions. ; - )

Are you talking about installing DRIVERS? I'm running XP on my machine. I haven't had Windows (XP or 7) ask for drivers for the SSD's I've installed on other machines. With a new drive, it just loads up whatever driver it uses, then recommends a restart.

Eventually, I'll be switching to Linux Mint at home.

As for backups... yes, I'm usually very good with doing them. Naturally, the one time I decide to postpone one... is the time Ol' MURPHY decides to jump out and solidly bite my posterior!! >:(

I would never recommend not running the mfg. provided controller software… they write it for a reason. : - )
