Help?
That doesn't look like the Intel port to me. Switch to another.

Can you add me to the club ? I am loving my new samsung 128gb 830. It is so much faster than my crucial m4. I have mac os x lion on the samsung and windows 7 on the crucial. Been using the os x about 99 % of the time. I know its not a OS thats favored on here but for me it works great since I dont game anymore. Thanks thumb.gif

Finally set mine up with an install of W7. I guess I'm happy with the speeds.

Quick formats are fine, full formats i would not do.
Quote:
Quick vs. Full Formatting:
You should only quick format your SSD.

  • A quick format - is a formatting option that creates a new file table on a hard disk but does not fully overwrite or erase the disk. Quick formatting erases/rewites the FT (File Table) of the File System partition. So basically quick formatting just erases/rewrites anew what is essentially a directory that tells the operating system where files are and what spaces are free to write new data on.
  • A full format - is a formatting option that creates a new file table on a hard disk, but does not fully overwrite and erase the disk as well. A full format erases/rewrites the FT (File Table) of the File System partition and runs chkdsk. Chkdsk.exe is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds. For example, Chkdsk can repair problems related to bad sectors, lost clusters, cross-linked files, and directory errors. Chkdsk does one pass of writing zero's to the drive to ensure that the sectors are working properly. But the zero's are also rewritten with the previous 1 or 0. This is why full formats take so much longer. So basically a full format is quick format + Chkdsk.
  • You don't need to run chckdsk on your drive b/c all it does is check for bad sectors and checks file system integrity assuming that the LBA's are going to be located in a specific place, but just as I said with defraging, the controller will only know what LBA is what and the program will not, so it is useless. It is not "good" for your SSD because all it does is cause add wear to the memory cells when you don't need it to. So in all only quick format your SSD.

Damn it, so it does weaken them frown.gif Well it depends, i'm anticipating a format right now since i'm getting a new gpu and i'm contemplating on installing windows 8, if i don't like it that means another format pretty soon but if i decide to keep it a new format would be around October as well. So what damage might occur? how many days/months am i tearing off it's life ? tongue.gif


Later edit:

What does a windows installation do when formatting? i'm using the installer as a format tool, is it quick or with chkdisk? I'm sorry about the simple questions but i'm new
