So as my backup box by gramps nicely restored it, it wasn’t a major disaster but I just had a laptop with a Samsun SSD 830 Model MX-7PC128 crater and die.
It basically froze up on us as Cliff was doing a presentation last week on Azure. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, it booted but it would freeze and die ever since.
Just a reminder that when SSDs die, they die without warning. To make sure you have a backup of them.
