I have a 128GB SSD that I use daily for off-site backups from our server. How many times can I expect to insert / remove it from the hot-swap drive bay before the connectors wear out? According to the SATA spec, the expected durability is 50 'matings' for a standard cable, but is it any different for a fixed connector in a drive bay. I currently insert / remove the SSD daily, 5 days a week.
Has anyone got any experience of them wearing out, and is there anything I can do to prolong life expetancy?
