USB Flash Drive life


Recommended Posts

Flash drives have redundant spaces to allow for some failure - youd need a special firmware reader to identify if the firmware has any known bad blocks its not writing too anymore and the ones I know of are proprietary. With wear levelling these days it wont wear out quick anyway.

Hi Pfipps B)

I started a topic that may provide some useful Info http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=11774 mainly to find out about defraging flash drives, and if it had any positive or negative results "reduced life" of the device.
