How can I tell when a thumb drive has had too many read/write cycles? Answered
I asked another question about building a laptop hard drive out of usb thumb drives, and one person made a good point: the read/write cylce ratings of thumb drives aren't as high as those for a regular, magnetic disk hard drive, so they would need to be replaced as they got worn out from all of the read/write cycles. So, how do I tell when a thumb drive is getting old before it keels over and I lose a chunk of my hard drive? Thanks!
