I have a Mushkin 500GB SSD installed in my machine that's been giving me some problems - I think.
This is a simple encrypted drive. I use TrueCrypt as the encryption software. My computer specs are in my signature.
A few weeks ago, I lost access to the encrypted drive. (By that, I mean that the drive was no longer detected). TrueCrypt informed me that this could be due to a defective data cable. So, I swapped out the cable, and regained access to the drive. All was well.
A few days ago, I lost access to the drive again. This time, I simply re-seated the data cable at each end, and the drive reappeared. This happened again this morning, so...
I opened the box, and took a good look at my cable arrangements. They all seemed to be fine - tied down when necessary and tucked neatly away. I can't detect any abnormal vibrations, really - though in all honesty, I wouldn't know normal vibration from abnormal vibration.
Any thoughts on this? Should I perhaps get the data off this drive (It's not part of my normal backup routine) and replace it?
