Wear leveling is a function of the SSD that is designed to extend the life of the NAND. If you use the same part of the SSD all the time, the NAND begins to wear out at a faster rate than normal. PNY implements wear leveling processes to spread out writes to NAND. This implementation helps avoid “hot spots” and makes sure the SSD lasts as long as possible.
