I bought an SSD Samsung 830 128GB. Installed Windows 7 on it with drivers and frequently used programs.
If i was not to use it and go back to my spinning HDD and not use it but have power going through it when i turn the computer on...Will it lose slowly lose data if i dont use it as primary? Is there anything else i need to know if i was to "store" a SSD away for safe keeping-like a backup?
The rumors of SSDs having a short lifespan are exagerated, much like Plasma TVs. SSDs last 5-10 years even under heavy usage and most manufacturers offer warranties of at least 3 years (Samsung included) with extended warranties available at some retail shops.
