what file system are you using? ssd drives have different

particularly if they are older sata cables being run at a possibly
higher than rated speed.
When working with a Cubieboard SoC (or most of the other armv7 boards),
you tend to have everything hanging out:

I have checked the cables and they are all tight.

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.
I will have to look into that.

Here's a thought: I've not done this, but could you use smartctl to check
the drive?

Other than the 17K output from smartctl -x, what do you recommend?
