SSD's and Antivirus
Jan 15, 2011, 11:06 PM
I don't know anything about how antivirus programs work, but is there any chance scanning a solid state drive will write information on the drive?
I'm thinking about getting a new SSD, but I want to know if installing Ad-aware will have any negative side effects.
Thanks in advance.
