    Intel SSD 520 - USB 3.0 Wear Leveling & Garbage Collection





      I was hoping I could get some more educated opinions and preferably facts about a wear leveling concern I'm having with my SSD.


      Usage: Running multiple VMs off a SSD connected by USB 3.0.

      Device: Intel 520 120GB SSD (SSDSC2CW120A3)

      Concern: I am unable to find whether or not the device itself will do wear leveling independently since I have been told USB devices cannot pass the commands to the device and also if it its able to do garbage collection while on USB 3.0.



      Thanks for your time,
