    Default Restoring a Solid State Drive to New

    I am vaguely familiar with a process that restores a SSD to where it's basically new.

    I want to do this so it'll be set with my new install coming next week.

    I'm using a Patriot Torqx 64GB, and I want to have it super fresh for my incoming Classified + 920 D0.



    How do I restore my SSD?

    Thanks

    I think if you have the latest firmware you can use the Performance Restore Utility for the drive.

    You could format the SSDs but i'd avoid doing it on a frequent basis, SSDs wear due to the number of writes onto those cells. So yes reformating is a good way to start fresh and clean on a SSD but frequent installation to the SSD drives arent recommended.

    BTW congrats on that SSD drive, its one hellva good SSD drive

    Yeah formatting it still writes to the cells, so you won't get your speed back to "new" (empty cells) that way. I had the Patriot Warp v2's and there was no way to get them "clean" which was unfortunate. That said, the drop in performance honestly was't huge when I ran the benchmarks after 9 months of use and numerous formats and windows re-installs.

    I would delete the partition table and create a new one then format.
