As much as I love software debugging, hardware debugging stories are great for me as well. SSDs are by far the best thing to happen to personal computers in a long time. I attribute the vast majority of my feelings towards the MacBook Air to their SSDs.

I’m also paranoid about backups.

Reading this story would have me returning that SSD anyway, but it’s good to know that if he hadn’t had a backup he likely could have retrieved his once-lost data.
