    Solid state drives are fast replacing hard disk drives as the storage medium of choice. However, they have issues that preclude their ascendency over the hard disk drives. Their flash memory cells have a limited lifespan, and they can perform badly under certain circumstances.

    Modern SSDs use a mix of techniques and technologies like overprovisioning of memory cells, wear levelling, a write combine buffer (or on-the-fly data compression), and the Trim command or automatic garbage collection to maintain performance and extend the lifespan of the flash memory cells. However, there's only so much they can do.

    This is where the Solid State Drive Optimization Guide comes in. In this guide, we will show you how to maintain the performance and longevity of your solid surface drive. Let's get right down to it.
