What exactly is Wear Leveling count ?? 840 Pro

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the 128 GB 840 Pro, and it’s only been about two and a half weeks. However when I checked the S.M.A.R.T data I noticed that ID 177 (Wear Leveling count) is already at 9%, is my drive failing?? Should I be worried?

I hate doing this (but you deserve it). GO HERE

There's also a very large thread here on the Samsung 840 Pro series SSDs where I'm sure you can find an answer or ask your question.

Do you have Trim and Garbage Collection set up? There are a number of other changes to Windows you should make when using any SSD.

lolz. Thanks.

Yes, I enabled TRIM as soon as I installed Windows 8.
