Dead Intel 320 Series SSD

This SSD wouldn’t keep recognizing its own existence for long enough to even run the SMART tools against it. I ordered a Samsung 840 Pro yesterday, it arrived this morning.

I’ve installed (k)Ubuntu on it, updating now. In a bit I’ll strip the chips off that board, and crush them – that’s the only way to securely destroy data on an SSD.

Today: More house cleaning. Ciao!
