Re: 500GB flash hard drive?
Found this article - CD/DVD/Flash Shelf Life?
"its called "flash" memory, not "freeze" memory. Its simply not designed for archival storage."
You also might want to check out this PDF - on page 3
"Data retention explains how long a flash cell will retain its data,
statistically. NAND flash found its growth, and was originally optimized for consumer applications where the flash device is treated as temporary storage, such as digital cameras."
Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something. ¯ Robert A. Heinlein
