So after owning this thing for almost 10 days, my drive ended up writing just over 200GB to itself, which is an issue in its own when my entire system install is only 90GB, but anway:
I download the software update today when it prompted me, restart as directed, and find that ALL of my cached data and “learned” frequent usage is just totally gone. Now I need to have the SSD thrash itself again with another 200GB of writes in just over a week’s time while it learns my usage all over again.
Oversights like this are unacceptable, I’m RMAing the drive on monday. This problem, coupled with the background process consuming almost 1GB of RAM and the fact that the drive just REFUSES to stop writing gig upon gig every hour has put me off completely. I don’t want to spend my own money in postage when this thing inevitably goes due to an end of life problem.
Basically, you guys need to kick Condusive in the butt to polish their software. This kind of thing should never have made it to release, and software updates from them should never break everything.
