Please can Intel confirm the typical length of time that data written ONCE ONLY to a SSDSA2bW600G3 600GB 320 Series 2.5" SATA SSD may be expected to be retained?

If an SSDSA2bW600G3 600GB 320 Series 2.5" SATA SSD is written to only once - but is only expected to be subjected to around 20-30 reads during its lifetime, then please can Intel confirm the typical time that the data is likely to be preserved intact before data degradation occurs?

Hello PHaml

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Please find attached to this post two public documents that will clarify and provide you with information regarding the SSDs data retention capabilities, if the drive is powered OFF.

 

If powered ON – and in this case, only one write plus the SSD performs background activities – no research exists to know how long the drive will last- however it is expected to last well beyond its 5 yr warranty. 

 

We hope you find this information helpful. If you have future questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will be more than happy to help you in any way we can.

 

Have a nice day.

 

Best regards,
