(SSD) Solid State drive disaster

SSD - (Solid State drive)

! data storage !
!used in all devices today!
!please keep regular backups!

The SSD - (Solid State drive) has a controller chip (the boss) when this chip decides not to work anymore, in most cases the data cannot be recovered. This chip holds the encryption key enabling the data on the storage to be readable by the user.
Usual encryption key is 39 digits long if worse then 79 digits long.
Today only quantum computers would be able to do this in reasonable time.
So, you can guess what this means.

Laptop Service as MOT ?

In just a few words I would like to express the need for laptop service as MOT of the laptop that you own.

This applies to all brands of computers: Mac or PC.

If the laptop is used 24/7 the result of build up micro dust particles is normal.

In 6-8 months it is strongly advised to get your laptop checked. The cost of cleaning is around 1 to 2 hours of labour in usual case.

If you don't service the laptop there will soon be no air flow in the laptop and the fan will start to be very loud.

Most of us know this situation, as the laptop gets older the speed is not there anymore. At some point the laptop just stops working.

Most of us are driving on daily basis. Can you imagine if you never changed or added engine oil to the car, and never took the car to the garage?

I guess that is why we got introduced the servicing and MOT. So why we are not doing this for the tool - which is often doing most for us?

You are forced to buy a new laptop around 18 months. After servicing in most cases the laptop is still in good performance and no need to purchase a new one.

Lets try to save the planet instead of emptying our own pockets.
