VM Container stored internally could damage the router - warning


#1

Hi, I just got this notification after the latest update. I’ve had this VM Container stored on my router for months, never in use, never running. Today I got a red warning telling me it could damage my router if stored internally.

What damage are we talking about? How do I check if I have any damage?

Thank you.

Writes into flash memory wear it down over time, until the memory breaks. It’s the same as USB flash drives and to lesser extent SSDs, but external drives are easy and cheaper to replace when worn out.

When a container doesn’t run, it doesn’t write anything :smile: (but it’s not being useful either)
