Annotation:

The presentation focuses on the treatment of data stored on solid state drives (SSD), and consequently the treatment of data erased from them. First, the SSD technology is described, starting from a memory cell, through their alignment into pages and blocks in the NAND structure to basic operations carried over these objects. Further, typical tasks such as running a garbage collector, wear levelling, etc., are described. Next, the activity of the controller, which ensures the optimum functioning of SSD, is described. The second part of the presentation focuses on experiments with a particular SSD model.
