Will Wiping an SSD Make It Faster Than Before?

My SSD is getting slow, and I heard that wipe data will make SSD faster than before. Is that true? Will wipe data cause damage to the SSD? I hope someone can help me with these. Thanks.

Generally speaking, wiping an SSD couldn't make it faster than before unless it is infected by malware and virus. That's because erasing it will clear the virus and error, which makes the SSD run faster. In addition, erasing an SSD too often will damage it.

Part 1. Situations of when to wipe SSD

Apart from speeding up the disk, I have rounded up some other scenarios that need to erase SSD:

  • Wipe the data on the SSD to protect your information privacy.
  • Clean up your SSD for other usages, such as store games or Operating Systems.
  • Clean up viruses or malware on the SSD to maintain its good performance.

If you have encountered these situations and want to erase your SSD securely without failure and damage, try to use the Wipe Disk feature of EaseUS Partition Master. It's an easy and effective method to wipe the data on SSD, which is especially friendly to the computer beginner.
