You are using a 256 G SSD device for a project that sounds very
archival in nature. Are these cards really that reliable. I avoid
anything greater than 1G SSDs for photography work - if one goes bad
then I lose a few hundred images (backed up anyway on a hard-drive).
But if a 256 G SSD went bad then I'd lose milions. Not worth the risk.
