I have Samsung 840 Pro 256GB drive. In spec of this drive is following info: 5 years limited (client PC use only, 1 year data retention)* 5 years limited warranty assumes a workload of 40GB/day (host writes, 3-month data retention) for enterprise applications. Workloads in excess of 40GB/day are not covered under warranty.
My question is:
What is data retention? Is this meaning the drive will lost all data on it if I won`t power up the drive through the 1 year (for example, I remove the drive from PC for a long time)? I don`t understand this parameter. What is diffrence between client PC use only, 1 year data retention and host writes, 3-month data retention? Only 3 months without power in write intensive environment and all data on SSD will be destroyed?? I use this drive at home mainly for read operations - must I worry about my data?
Thanks for reply!
