Regarding storage of data technology ALL will eventually fail. The only hedge is regular backups, preferably more than one type in more than one location. SSDs are now warrantied at least as long as spinners. Why would it matter that a failed spinner still has the data which could be recovered with some effort and instruments in a clean room, when a second drive is vastly cheaper and easier to access?

What's up with that?
You've created the thread in the non-technical General forum, where threads cannot be marked as solved.

Use the Report button on the first post and ask for it to be moved to a more appropriate forum (presumably either Linux-Hardware or Linux-General).
