    You also had Ultra DMA CRC Errors, which can point to a bad cable or connection.

    One reason I still prefer hard drives is that solid state drives can just suddenly stop working while hard drives tend to show their age and give warning.

    Of course with a solid state hard drive I may have the worst of both worlds, although the flash is not often written to.

    My way of getting the equivalent of an Apple fusion drive.

    Sure enough, HDDs can do the former too. Sometimes switching boards helps with that I suppose.
