HDD vs. SSD – Challenges with new technologies [video part 2]

In this video I will be looking at some of the common issues that a user when faces with recovery, erasure and encryption scenarios.

Why recoveries are time consuming, what issues does wear levelling cause when an engineer performs a reconstruction and why do manufacturers use different configurations or algorithms to store data.

With encryption what are the potential risks from a user point of view. What happens in a failure and is it possible to recover from. We will also take a look at some of the potential security flaws of erasing solid state drives and why it might be possible to perform a recovery even after a secure erasure has taken place.

The message we are trying to deliver is solid state drives are no more secure than traditional methods. Companies and users alike should plan for any disaster recoveries they may face.
