[QUOTE=ilnot1;2752251]Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought the issue mainly was for people who had these drives in systems that were powered off for weeks/months at a time and then tried to use them again and encountered this issue.[/QUOTE]
Not necessarily. All that’s required is writing a file, never opening it/updating it for a long time (so you never refresh the stored charge), and eventually the stored charge might droop just enough that it triggers the aggressive read retry bug. It doesn’t drop so much that the data is lost, but the drive’s firmware has to be sure it isn’t getting bad data.
But turning off a system and not using the drive for a while (while it has data stored on it) follows the general formula to run across this issue.
