I am sorry you have had no other wins in life so need this one, I am inferior and you are my superior, you make up a math sum and I am wrong.


Warning awesome music ahead....
Do you like music? I like music too, lets toast!

Don't say you had no warning.

I prefer heavier stuff but thanks. I'll keep on with ignoring your snark and you keep going on with your 8TB drives.

There is no read for SSD really, only HDD have read counted, that's why y SSD are 100% !!
Neat, i have too 7Tb games installed ready to launch :p
It's a Gamin' PC.
They don't have reads, but the writes eat up their life, not to mention their "remaining life indicator" which pretty much every manufacturer includes in SMART these days.

I don't want you to do anything, relax. :)

All I'm saying is that I've currently got 20- something games installed, but I never play more than 2 or 3 at a time.
I have the most prominennt games installed so I can just flick to it if I want to play it, just turns out that's a lot of prominent games.

I will ignore your narcissism and need to be right even though this is a subjective thread.

I prefer women, leave me alone.

So, QVO will not be problmetic in my situation ?! :

i buyed it it... will come tomorrow as a 8Tb unit, has there been evolution in the hardware build since launch ?.. i paid 400 euros.

I will use it to merge all my actual drives in one, and when possible i will switch to one NVMe 8Tb and use the QVO as backup, it will not have a lot of re-writes in the meantime and will have the needed files serving on it as backup when switched to a n NVMe, so no re-write after switch, just keep update files in the future.

Depending on how big the SLC cache is on that drive you might need to break up the file copy into multiple parts with a little breather in between.

Yeah, i thinked exactly that, and after files are all copied, i can use it safely, read will not make it age/fail !?

I've been told it has 80Gb endurence/cache, so i should copy by 80Gb ?.. and wait how much time between two copies ?

I'll use Synckback it has pause function anytime.

I have never known or read that ssd reads were ever an issue as far as drive wear and tear. Writes are the biggie that wears out the drives over time.

I'm not sure what that means exactly. Perhaps you can do a test and create some test zip files in various increments of 10GB and do some file copy testing to the EVO and see at what point the SLC cache get's exhausted and your copy speeds drop to intolerable levels. It's going to be different depending on the drive capacity. On my 1TB EVO I just need to wait a short time maybe 15 to 30 seconds once it gets saturated before I give it another go.

Perfectly understood, i will follow copies on Synckback interface then put pauses when needed, allright, well thanks.

I'm personally not fat on data. Can live well even if limited to funny 500 GB. Usually have a couple somewhat modern games installed and some rare movies saved just in case. This doesn't mean I won't buy a fat SSD some time later, it's just not as necessary.

The only reason I don't have an HDD is my ultimate "drop the bass" ability leading to irreversible damage of them. Can't trust my hands.

Also that's not accounting for any % you set aside for overprovisioning which is optional.
Is there much benefit to doing this manually? don't SSD's have over provisioning straight out of the box with space that you can't see/access?

Normally yes. Samsung drives you can manually change it but it's not recommended since those backup cells replace dead cells to increase longevity.

Is not leaving a portion of the drive unallocated doing the same thing? just been googling about it and wondering if there would be any benefit on a drive where you don't necessarily need all of the space :confused:

From what I have read leaving a portion of the drive unallocated is the same thing. The controller can use the unused space as needed.

If you write many GB per day it might be useful.

Listen to whoever you want. Either use the drives as drives, manually trim during the transfer, or whatever that wall of text is. Not going to argue over how to move files.

And it gets better, since files are verified (SyncBack), it will read the files after write, letting time to cache to flush, no ?

I would just try it. If the performance of the transfer drops after many ### number of GB's you will have your answer and can adjust your copy strategy accordingly. Larger drives will have larger caches so you may not have any issue at all.

From what I have read leaving a portion of the drive unallocated is the same thing. The controller can use the unused space as needed.
Why did I never think of that? How many times I told my parents to leave a portion of their SSD empty! How much headache this could have saved me! :rolleyes:

And if somebody else told me to apply pauses during full 7Tb file copy process, what should i do in the end, pause or not pause ??

I'd be too lazy to bother with a file copy in the background. I'd just let it do its thing. If it takes X hours, it takes X hours, who cares?

But to be fair, this is why I'd never buy a cacheless QLC drive.
