    HDDs are cheaper and better for long term storage, but are obviously slower.

    In any case you should have at least
    2 physically separate backups of anything really important.
    Yeah when SSD's fail they usually do it in style, one minute going next Dead. Just had a customers whose SSD Failed, thankfully he had only just done a backup the previous day As well as having all the important data backed up on line automatically. Cant beat auto backups

    Large businesses with enough money, and the desire for that kind of storage, I expect.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Hi! it depends from your wife's activity, if she is using laptop for personal use and don't stock a lot of information then an SSD is better, because it is faster and I recomend from Samsung one or Kingston, but if she has a lot of information to stock then HDD is cheaper and better, recomend from WesternDigital (WD).
