I am thinking of moving my user files from my Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SSD to the hard drive. But instead of a plain HDD, I plan on migrating that to raid1. The ssd is far from full. But my experience with SSDs is when they die its immediate. My backup pc is showing signs of a failing hdd. It has a 250GB SATA SSD.

I wonder if it can be put on a raid1 with an HDD. The HDD will serve as a slow mirror backup.

I again tried copying files of one Windows user from the SSD to the HDD. The speed was so slow that to copy just 2GB will take more than a day.

^Try using SyncToy program from Microsoft. I find that it is much faster than using just a plain copy command especially when you're dealing with thousands of small individual files.

FreeFileSync is better than SyncToy IMO.

What SSD is the failing one? How much data was written to it already?

No current SSDs are failing yet. But I had a Vertex 128GB suddenly fail. My experience with flash drives is they just suddenly stop working. I expect this is the failure mode of SSDs as well.

I know I will be sacrificing some speed when moving to traditional HDDs for user file storage. But I am hoping to offset some of that by using raid1.

hmmmn. Been accustomed to using SSDs, that I forgot that my first SSD (840 EVO), bought January of 2014 is still in use on my main PC, 4years with 30TB of writes, it still is OK, and I don't try to think of it as a fragile SSD like before I first bought it, i've re-installed a couple of times and don't tweak it anymore for 'ssd-use'...

also have an Intel 530 and a couple of cheapo kingstons on the laptops in the house, none of them seem to show any sign of ssd-wear

My first SSD is a Samsung 830 240GB still healthy after 37TB of writes over 5.5 years, it's been in my work laptop for a couple of years now.

mahal naman kasi sobra pag ssd tapos storage lang.  para sakin mga programs and operating system lang ang fit for ssd.  maybe in the near future ssd would be a good choice for storage but now i would get a regular hdd for my storage needs

^ true
I have 250GB+500GB SSDs for OS/apps/games/documents plus ~6TB in various HDDs on my desktop for downloads/media archival
NAS (11TB?) is for content consumption & document/media archival redundancy in case desktop fails.

Still need to setup some offline storage in case both devices fail though.

Archiving to BD-R might be a good option, if you've got he time.  I did this for all the pictures I've taken over the past decade.

medyo nagtitiwala na ako sa cloud.  so im backing up pictures to google photos which apparently declares that they would store unlimited photos as long as they are in "HD quality" only.  could be a good option for people with lots of photos.  a fast upload speed i guess is essential for this too

The search feature on Google Photos is also pretty awesome, once you accept that Google really is big brother lol.

just checked the price of BD-R's compared say to a 2TB disk, HD will still be cheaper & i'm not sure on how many years can those BD disk be stored. Checked my CD/ DVD's from way way back some of them are now peeling off or are now very brittle, I guess storage temp & humidity plays a big role.
