How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

The standard way to do diagnostics for hard drives was always smartctl. I guess the same interface should work for SSD… but I’ve got no experiences with SSD yet.

Method 2

SSD Life is a good software, but for Windows only 🙁
As said liori above, you can use any SMART control software and look for attribute value, what corresponds to drive health. For example, for Intel SSDs it’s a E9 – media wearout indicator, it’s value is a drive health (100 = 100%).

Method 3

You can try new software – SSDlife

Freeware version basic enough and support all major SSD drives and controllers.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
