SSD Health Warning.

post #1 of 24

What does it mean and what do I do?
post #2 of 24
Run SSD Life and check on your drives health status. It sounds like your drive might be beginning to degrade, which isn't a good sign. (But it could just be a premature warning because of a failed read/write).

SSD Life says 63% (but drive health is Excellent, it says, in all caps), which is 1% less than what CrystalDisk Info says.

How do I revitalize it?

Revitalize? Unfortunately that's one thing you can't do. These readings aren't 100% accurate, but they are calculations based on the wear and tear you've put on your drive. I believe most gen2 SSDs are given roughly 72TB of writes to the flash cells, although they might do less, or they might do more in reality.

Try to make sure you are using TRIM if it's supported, and disable any programs that might be constantly writing little things to your drive if you worry about extending its lifetime. As far as errors are concerned, well you'll need more data.

Tweak?
post #9 of 24
trim=true right? I'd say it does. SO in that case, you might want to mess with the page file and shrink it down to like 400-800 MB since you have so much ram. That way the drive won't write as much...otherwise I'd poke around on the OCZ forums and see if that is normal for your drive.

TRIM is on. Can I move the page file to another hard drive?
