Wanted to share this interesting intersection of marketing & technology, the write-once SSD. Correct this isn’t April Fools… Verbatim have announced a write-once SSD.
Theres a 10 year warranty against drive failure, it uses an exFAT file system and can be read by any OS supporting exFAT, but you require Win 10/11 and .Net 4.8 to install the proprietary software to write to the drive.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, there are huge caveats listed, effectively it’s not tested to destruction against experienced hackers, but a handy way to prevent accidental file deletion.
I wonder if we’ll start to see a market for this emerge…
