    So I installed an OWC SSD in my MBP a few months ago. The speed is great but 3 times already I've had to reformat due to corruption or some other random reason. Does anybody know why this is happening and how I can prevent it? I barely have anything on it (~50 gigs). Disk utility can never fix it so I have to reinstall the OS and backup from TM. Possibly just a bad drive?

    Also, it didn't freeze or anything as I was using it. I just restarted it and it wouldn't boot up anymore.

    The screenshot is what happens when i do try to repair.

    Wow. Seems to me you might have returned it after the first failure.

    Can't help it, but the correct word is "irritating," not "aggravating" in this context.

    Sorry for your troubles though. I'm sure OWC can fix things up for you.

    Yeah, I would try to get an exchange and if that one doesn't work, refund and try diff brand.

    My OWC SSD also screwed over within the first few weeks of me owning it. Didn't bother fixing it myself, sent back to OWC, they fixed it and sent back with FedEx express priority shipping, got it back in 2 weeks. They only re-applied the firmware.

    Anyway, just organize an RMA over the phone, and you should be all good.
