Due to the SSD structure, data cannot be 100% deleted. The SSD consists of memory cells that can only be rewritten to a limited number of times, often several hundred thousand times. If this limit is reached, the affected cells can only be read. Overwriting them to make the data illegible will no longer work. Manufacturers also install invisible buffers - usually a few GB. As soon as a cell fails, one automatically jumps in from the buffer memory. This increases the lifespan of an SSD.
