First and foremost, if we do not have or do not remember the parameters of our SSD, we should go to the manufacturer's website to look at its specifications and by reviewing it where it shows us the functionality of the component, in order to compare the data.
We start from the baseline and under the premise that we know this data, so the first step would be to look at the current performance of our disk by measuring the speed of the SSD.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark enters the scene
Ideally, download the full bench as ATTO, which will tell us the functionality of our SSD reading and writing in a file size and size beyond the attractive. A benchmark requires nothing more than a start-up and a start-up to measure performance, so eventually and when it's done, the information we show will be something like:
The speed will logically vary between different models, but for us there is a decline in performance over time in writing, while readability remains strong. This is because we have almost full SSD, which reduces performance in this category.
Similarly, it is the most common behavior in SSDs that need to be removed and restored to their original location.
Store data in SSD
The process we will execute produces the total amount of disk, so the good thing is that we store everything that is needed for another hard disk before starting. After the removal is done, most files may not be available from any recovery software, so you have to make sure what's stored and what's not working.
Removing and restoring SSD
Although each product offers different software to perform this process, we will do it from a very personal and functional stage, because for example, if we want to restore the functionality of a core unit of software, there is no software option available that will allow us to do it while we are on Windows.
So, we have to get into the UEFI of our boards and move to a secure SSD clearance. This option will vary depending on the onboard model and possibly the UEFI model we have, but generally today they all install it as standard.
Restore the speed of your SSD
In our case we will use a ASUS X570-F Gaming.
Once inside UEFI, we will go to the Tools section, where the workspace is located ASUS Safe Remove, where we will continue to enter.
Once inside we will be shown the SSD for availability and whether the board is compliant. Now we have to choose the only one we want to restore, accept the warning and in just a few minutes (in the worst case) we will have our SSD ready, running and full speed, as it came from the factory, for all its operation.
