Re: Ssd failed

John Hanley

So I reinstalled Ubuntu with a fresh install of 18.04. The first try gave me an error I can't remember after resizing partitions and continuing with the installation. I think it said it may be a result of hardware problems. 

The second attempt worked and when I view my disk in the disk utility it tells me "Disk is OK, 17 bad sectors."

Is 17 bad sectors ok on a 120 GB SSD? I am bummed it got damaged when its only a year old. 

Should I be buying another drive?

Really nothing to do with what type of drive it is.
A filesystem got corrupted. 
Probably due to files in memory not written to the drive. Might even be a memory glitch.

So my file server crashed. The error I get when bootiing is I have to run fsk manually on the root drive. My / drive is a solid state drive. How would a solid state drive get corrupted?
