  1. Saiyan, No. The surface scan is read only. The only time we write is if we are able to recover files, after you've told it to. The same thing goes with the file system check. We don't alter any of the data on the drives without your explicit permission. And to clarify, we don't really identify if it's a SSD or HDD. We just identify the drive (using Windows APIs). How we handle the drive doesn't change between SSD or HDD. And in fact, because of what Scanner does, it doesn't matter what kind of drive it is because we are "hands off" with your drives.

    Surface scan and SSD

    Hi Saiyan, I'm the developer. The Scanner never writes to SSDs while performing a surface scan and therefore does not in any way impact the lifespan of the SSD. However, SSDs do benefit from full disk surface scans, just like spinning hard drive, in that the surface scan will bring the drive's attention to any latent sectors that may become unreadable in the future. The Scanner's disk surface scan will force your SSD to remap the damaged sectors before the data becomes unreadable. In short, there is no negative side effect to running the Scanner on SSDs, but there is a positive one
