SSD trashes itself at intervals!

Have an odroid XU4 with the usb3 sata adapter

I have installed a single SanDisk Ultra II 240GB, but it trashes itself every so often - wondering if this particular drive has problems with odroid?

Any ideas? Guess I could try a different sata adapter and a different drive. Guess that would leave diff power supply and cables to also try!

The XU4 otherwise runs well, but really need some reliable disk!

The primary GPT table is corrupt, but the backup appears OK, so that will be used.

(apple partition is there as I reformatted drive on a mac using estFS for mac, to get it rebuilt/check that it was working correctly)

You are using a very old 3.10 kernel which is not supported.

Flashing the latest image which comes with Kernel 4.14.
