Hardware, Embedded Systems It's no secret that SSDs suffer from performance penalties when it comes to small random writes. Even though more modern SSD try to solve some of these issues hardware-wise, software can also play a major role. Instead of resorting to things like delaying all writes until shutdown and storing them in RAM, SanDisk claims it has a better option. At WinHEC yesterday, the company introduced its Extreme FFS, which it claims will improve write performance on SSDs by a factor of 100.

I'm hoping that this means more craptastic tools like anything that involving U3 throws at you. I love that stuff so much. The only way it could get better would be if it would use up some more drive letters mounting pointless volumes!

That is why you run a handy little tool that wipes that crap off the memory key.

It shouldn't be on there in the first place. I'm buying some external storage for my personal data. I don't want somebody else's data on it.

If I was interested in their crapware, I'd download it from their website.
