    If I want to "copy" a large folder game from an SSD and paste to a Ram Drive, does the "reads" (which I assume is Copy), does that affect the life of the drive as much as writing to the drive would?
    Or does copy from the drive not affect it at all?
    thanks

    Reads don't affect endurance.

    Isn't it slightly more complex?

    My understanding is that reads cause read disturb errors. As errors accumulate, data eventually needs to be re-written.

    Not that I'd particularly worry about it in terms of affecting endurance. But there would be some impact.
