SSD And Temperature issue

We prefer SSD over conventional mechanical HDDs ,because they are better than regular mechanical hard drives, which are slow and sluggish. They move data at a much faster rate. But  a recent presentation by hard drive maker Seagate’s Alvin Cox warned that the period of time data is retained on some solid-state drives is halved for every 9°F (or 5°C) rise in temperature where its stored.

That means if a solid-state drive is stored in a warm room, say 77°F (25°C), its data can last for about two years. But, if that goes up by a mere few degrees to 86°F (30°C), that data’s retention period will be cut in half.
