SSDs are made up of blocks of flash memory. In some SSDs, a single block contains a single piece of hard disk data. In other SSDs, a single block can contain multiple pieces of data. This allows the SSD to spread data across multiple blocks and avoid the balance point on the spinning disk, which is more susceptible to data loss from a single head crash. 7211a4ac4a
