Debunking Myths About Solid State Drive

If you've been looking for an alternative to your hard drive, you may have heard some horror stories about Solid State Drive (SSD). Let's clear the air with some myth busting. When you need to weed through the fact or fiction, here's the skinny on 5 myths about Solid State Drive.

1. Too Expensive: Once upon a time cost was a concern. Not so now. Like any new technology, when it first emerges, initial price is high. Over time, prices drop. So, where SSD is concerned, now is the future and upgrading to an SSD is affordable.

2. Too Hard To Install: If you have about 10 minutes to spare, can follow prompts to clone your old drive, and are click capable, you're good to go. Installing an SSD is relatively simple nowadays.

3. My Computer Isn't Compatible: If you have a modern laptop, desktop or notebook, it is, indeed, compatible. You can even convert some mobile devices like tablets or mini-notebooks.

4. It Will Let Me Down: SSDs are resistant to vibrations and shocks without losing data. That means incredible reliability. That's why smartphones and iPods use SSDs. Even military personnel deployed to desert regions find SSDs reliable despite the high-risk sand poses to sensitive electronics.

5. Not Enough Storage Space: Quite to the contrary, SSDs are available with more than 500GB of storage capacity. Use in conjunction with old hard drive storage and you're able to store massive amounts of data.

“I thought I had lost the last 15 years of my life in pictures, but they were able to recover them! Such a relief! Worth every penny!”
– Shannon M.
“Carolina Data Recovery saved the day! I had an external hard drive that contained all of my personal information and pictures over the last 3 years. This hard drive had crashed leaving me in a world of panic. Carolina Data Recovery specialists were able to fully recover my lost information, keeping me updated throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Carolina Data Recovery for all your data needs! ”

“The short: Calling Ron and his team was the best decision I could have made. Words like kind, respectful, prompt, and attentive come to mind. The long: My NAS crashed. I thought I lost my entire digital life. Forget about the files and documents one accumulates and all the music, I had 30 years of family pictures, some of who are no longer with us. I was in tears. I took my NAS to a big box store where I was given very robotic service by their "geeks" and was told it could cost me thousands of dollars, it would take at least a month (but I could leap to the front of the line for an extra $100) to even find out IF it was recoverable. I decided to look for someone local and thank God I found Carolina Data Recovery. Ron was able to confirm that the data was recoverable within 48 hours and had my data back to me within 72 hours. Beyond that, Ron took time to walk me though the process and listen to my concerns. Realizing I was a mess, Ron spent an hour on the phone with me explaining what I need to do going forward to ensure that this never happens again. Backing up your data IS important - hard lesson learned. I hope to never be in this situation again, but have comfort in knowing that Carolina Data Recovery has my back. ”
