Review differences between SLC, MLC, TLC and QLC.
This information applies for solid state drives based on NAND flash technology.
How to fix it:
NAND flash cells are categorized depending on the number of bits they can store:
- Single-Level Cell (SLC) can store one bit per cell.
- Multi-Level Cell (MLC) can store two bits per cell.
- Triple-Level Cell (TLC) can store three bits per cell.
- Quad-Level Cell (QLC) can store four bits per cell.
Drive's endurance is better towards SLC technology, while capacity is higher towards QLC SSDs technology.
