Duration Of Hard Drive Data
Solid reservoirs have a number of advantages over traditional hard drives: energy consumption, time and speed of access. And a year from now, the main flaw becomes less visible - SSD is cheap.
The report of Elvin Cox to the Committee of Electronic Engineers (JEDEC) raises issues long-term data storage on solid reservoirs and highlight the difference between household products and industrial samples.
Normal solid reservoir for ordinary consumer at 40° C and storage temperature at 25° C will keep information for 105 weeks, it's about two years. If the deactivated disc temperature rises at 5 degrees, the information will be stored for about a year, 52 weeks. Each 5 additional degrees in the deactivated state reduces the storage time by approximately twice.
