Windows XP does not have TRIM commands, so if you did not install the manufacturers software (and I believe you have to manually run it from time to time), the drive will not be TRIM’ed and I believe this causes failure. Not sure if it’s irreversible failure, or if that is what happened to your drive Willie, But something to consider.

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!! >:(

 

Willie...

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