I bought an SSD drive (Kingston SSDNow) and installed Debian 8 on it;

The system works fine. But today I'm tried to extract a huge tar archive (~8GB) and in the middle of extraction the system just freezed, nothing happened at all and I restarted it. Then I tried again, and again it freezed; I moved the tar to HDD and there it was extracted correctly;

I this a SSD Hardware glitch? Or just something wrong in configuration?

Here is a SMART of my SSH

  • Any error message with dmesg? Also, did you check, at the time of the failure, what the use of your memory was? Did you use the swap? How large is your swap anyway? – MariusMatutiae Dec 26 '15 at 9:54
  • I have 8GB of RAM and 2GB of swap; No that is not because of memory; I can't get any report from dmesg because of system hang. – atomAltera Dec 26 '15 at 10:37
  • The thing is I cant reproduce the error now, I maked trim (fstrim -a), and after that archive extracted successfully; But later I got I/O error in Thunar and a system crushed – atomAltera Dec 26 '15 at 10:54
