    I wonder what the actual odds of it dying on that exact date are. If it does die on that exact day make sure you
    buy a lottery ticket as well.

    It is not really predicting when it will die - just when the number of writes for the flash will reach 0%.

    My 4 Intel x25-M G2's (in RAID0) range from 8 years 3 months to 10 years 7 months.

    They were all purchased at the same time in November of 2009 and have always been in a RAID0 array.

    I guess the RAID driver writes small files to the same drive each time when it doesn't have to distribute the file in pieces across the array.

    I think I will rotate my SATA cables to see if it evens out.

    :thinking: Why don't you take the drive out your pc and pack it up and put it away for a couple years. I'm sure you can make it last till 2050 !
