Subject: Re: [CentOS] Errors on an SSD drive



what file system are you using?  ssd drives have different characteristics that
need to be accomadated (including a relatively slow write process which is
obvious as soon as the buffer is full), and never, never put a swap partition
on it, the high activity will wear it out rather quickly.  might also check
cables, often a problem particularly if they are older sata cables being run at
a possibly higher than rated speed.  in any case, reformating it might not be a
bad idea, and you can always use the command line program badblocks to exercise
and test it.  keep in mind the drive will invisibly remap any bad sectors if
possible.  if the reported size of the drive is smaller than it should be the
drive has run out of spare blocks and dying blocks are being removed from the
storage place with no replacements.
