Transmission & SD cards

I’ve had to create a new OSMC install for my Vero as the micro SD card I was using appears to have died. Since I used the Vero to host a bunch of torrents, what are the chances that the write cycles hit the card hard enough to reduce its lifespan? Anyone have a view on whether it would be worth looking at different storage for the torrent data please?

A USB hard drive is probably the best option.

Thanks Sam. Looks like the powered USB hub will be on my Christmas list
