What kind of luck are you boys having lately keeping your SD cards healthy? Between my two sites I’ve reformated/replaced the SD cards about a dozen times in the last couple of weeks. Maybe I’m just overdue for some bad luck. I’ve been buying the well regarded Sandisk and Samsung cards, among others. Same result typically on each. Not surprisingly, the problem was more pronounced after I switched to Mutability, performance graphs, and all that (which is fantastic) given the increased I/O. Recent power outages in this area because of high winds haven’t helped either. The latter can be resolved with a UPS obviously, but isn’t practical on my mast mounted rooftop installs.
A quick session with Dr. Google indicated that I might see some benefit with making the OS on the SD card read-only and pointing the rest of the disk I/O to a more stable volume like SSD or similar. Anyone messed with that type of approach?
In the meantime, I have both my sites dismantled and shut down since I’m tired of climbing on the roof. I was over my data cap anyway. Doing nearly 1GB per day on 4G cellular. That gets expensive. LOL!
