Both HDD & SSD failing, planning on replacing only HDD with new SSD.
I currently have both the SSD & HDD (Fusion Drive) on my iMac with a S.M.A.R.T. status failing. From my research it means that both these drives have very little life left in them.
I plan on splitting the Fusion Drive into the two separate drives and then only replace the HDD with the SSD using the iFixit drive replacement kit. However I’m not sure if it will cause any issues to still have the failing SSD left in the iMac. I had not planned to remove it since the process is a bit more involved and was hoping it would be fine to let the failed drive sit there without causing trouble.
Just hoping someone might know if this would be alright or if it would be best to remove the failed SSD as well.
Questa è una buona domanda?
