Curious... I thought that the built-in drive controller chipset already handled "wear-leveling" internally and transparently to the user.

I did do a little research, and the common failure mode for over-used NAND blocks, is that files will become "READ ONLY"... thus, allowing you to still retrieve them for backup/copy to a new drive. It would have been nice if THAT was the failure mode, here... my backups were good, but older, so a small amount of data was lost.

Gotta make more current backups, more often. ;)

Brian,

 

While Windows XP doesn’t provide support for TRIM, there are a number of software solutions that can use TRIM to optimize your SSD in XP.  For example, Piriform’s Defraggler: https://www.piriform.com/docs/defraggler/technical-information/defraggler-and-ssds
