I've been using a WD external spinner as a 'data drive' for the last 2 years. Up to now, it's worked great, mostly plugged into my main system, but also travelling with the laptop as needed...such as yesterday. This morning when plugging it in to my main system, Windows complains that it is unreadable or corrupted! WTF | :WTF:

I'm now scanning it with Defender (going on 2 hours now) as a preliminary to trying anything else. The 'Estimated time remaining' got down to < 11 minutes (about an hour in) but has since been increasing as the number of files scans flies past 2.5M. Sigh | :sigh:

I intend to try chkdsk once the Defender scan is complete...if it ever does. (time remaining still climbing)

So, back to the subject line. Given the current price/GB, performance, and reliability of SSDs, I highly doubt that I will ever buy another spinner. Even if I'm able to recover the current drive, I don't trust it anymore and will be replacing it asap.

Question: Has anyone here actually experienced a failure with an SSD? Just last year, I retired my first one (64GB Patriot) after 5 years as a server OS drive, not due to failure, but as part of the server upgrade. Personally, I've not had any issues whatsoever with them.
