My laptop's Liteon SSD seems to corrupt early written blocks
when the disk gets near to full. (Or randomly, not sure.)

Preparing to upgrade away from this POS.

(Via full OS reinstall since my OS doesn't track every OS file with hashes, which is kind of ridiculous.)

@joeyh I'm still scared to switch to an SSD given how often friends complain about corruption. I can't tell if I'm being absurd or not.

I wonder if there's a study out there about the relative corruption rate of spinning platters vs SSDs?

@cwebber I've NEVER had ssd corruption until my last one started failing after 2 years and the new laptop came with a bad one. Before that, 8 years or so, no failures.

TRIM support still seems a nightmare though.
