    I just advise people to not fill their drives to the brim. (Solid state or spinning)

    Or keep irreplaceable stuff like photos on separate drives or on their choice of trusted cloud service, maybe even physical copies...

    Back up people! You can keep physical back ups in other locations just to be safer...
