I really do not understand this statement, and I say that
as a professional computer tech.
I personally prefer SSDs for OS drives just due to the speed
factor, but definitely not for reliability or recoverability.
All of my personal backup drives are HDDs because they are
very reliable (and have been for decades now) and will
generally give you lots of warning signs before failure. SSDs
have a tendency to be very much like jump drives, SD cards,
and similar in that when they decide to die they just up and
die. And I can definitely say that the cost of data recovery
from SSDs (and other similar media) is far more expensive and
less certain than HDDs.
I wouldn't even think of using an SSD as my primary backup
media. Until they become far less inclined to sudden death,
and until data recovery probability goes way up and costs go
way down, I'll use HDDs as backup media.
