For those curious on here about how long SSDs retain data without power in the "consumer" situation, it's over a year. As a side note it is a good policy to clone and re-apply an image of any SSD drives once a year.
Consumer SSDs lose data in a week at 55C (131F) temperature. Commercial SSDs can lose date in a week at as little as 40C (104F).
55°C is not exactly normal when a SSD is powered off ;p According to these stats the time errors *begin* appearing is about 4 weeks with continous power off and over a year before a threshold is crossed into data loss
as opposed to correctable errors.
And who has a SSD powered off for a year? ^^
