That's how it may be and/or should and once samples are written to the SSD, those samples should be read only, so no more writing to the drive, unless adding more samples and then back to just the drive being a read from again. (I think?)
Interesting Site, Pretty Cool!!!
As a rule, SSD and flash drive built-in controllers monitor the re-writing of the internal flash media and move the data automatically when the rewrite count starts getting near the limit. There is built in spare media to cover this eventuality. There are many articles on the web debunking the limited rewrite myth such as this one:
"The first lesson came quickly. All of the drives surpassed their official endurance specifications by writing hundreds of terabytes without issue. Delivering on the manufacturer-guaranteed write tolerance wouldn't normally be cause for celebration, but the scale makes this achievement important. Most PC users, myself included, write no more than a few terabytes per year. Even 100TB is far more endurance than the typical consumer needs"
"So how long is long? To help users estimate how long an SSD will last, most SSD manufacturers present the drive's endurance by the amount of data that can be written to the drive. For example, the 750GB Crucial MX300 has an endurance of 220TBW, meaning you can write 220 terabytes of data to the drive before it becomes unreliable. To put this in perspective, if you write 50GB of data per day every day to the drive, it will take you some 12 years to wear it out. Most other SSDs have similar or better endurance ratings. Generally the larger the drive, the higher he endurance."
Bottom line, you can generally ignore this potential problem.
Yes Samsung 850 EVO 250GB = 75TBW, EVO 500GB = 150TBW
The info. links you provided (techreport.com) I've read before but not the cnet (thank you)!
I'm I correct to think the controller in the SSD decides when Trim runs ( I caught the bios part that I it could be in the mix too, I think?)
Will Trim work on each SSD independent of each SSD?
I think what I would to do with Drive Setup is this: (In AHCI Mode or Raid 1 for HDD Backup)
A 250GB SSD for OS+Programs, a 250GB SSD for dedicated Audio Tracking, Mixing Drive a 250GB SSD for a dedicated VST Sample Library, a 500GB SSD for a dedicated for Video Editing, a 1 TB WD Black HDD for Audio Backup, a 1TB WD Black HDD for Page File, Media Cache, Temp, Downloads, etc., and one 4TB WD BLACK for Backup of everything. Possibly pick up another 4TB for a Raid 1.
Can all this be done on one SSD and to always send to HDD Backup? Or What?
Please forgive me!!!
