Hi all, been a while since I have posted here but still running a receiver, it just keeps running EXCEPT…
It seems every 6 months or so I have a power event and the PiAware reboots and fails, further investigation reveals it the SD card giving up (it did fail outright once as well).
Each time a new SD card with a clean image sorts the issue out.
I wasn’t aware there was enough write activity to wear a card out, however that seems to be the case.
So my question is, is there a way of making the SD cards more reliable? I don’t expand the file system after firing it up as 2GB seems to be plenty of space. Would having more accessible capacity reduce the wear?
With the RaspberryPi 4 around the corner I was considering moving to a USB SSD, however I am not convinced the Pi 4’s extra resources will be of much benefit.
