Amazing how these utilities predict the lifespan of an SSD. Just like a bottle of milk which must be drunk until a certain date. How long have you been using this? Is this an OS SSD (I guess so)? If that's the case then you have nothing to lose.The worst think that can happen to you is to reinstall your OS on to your new SSD. By the way, how is the SSD performing? Do you notice any performance difference? If you wouldn't see this 17% would you predict that the life of your SSD is coming to its end? Wait till the 17% goes to 0% and see what happens. If it works fine you can still use it. Have you tested it with other utilities?

use more than 3 years i assume. Yeah it's been using as OS all the time.
Is there any more other utilities i can test? Do list. might give it a try.

Take a look at the following list. Try HDtune and others that are freeware. How is the SSD performance? Are you satisfied or have you noticed any great performance drop?

Indeed....It seems like the SSD is counting its last days or months before its soul flies away to the universe. If it is 3+ years old as you say, then it's time to change it, and only 64 GB, I would say it is time to upgrade. Since this is just an OS SSD you can use it till the end of it's life, IF, it is stable (you mentioned BSODs though). Then you can move to a new, modern and more stable SSD with larger capacity (180+ GB) and make a fresh install of your OS or use a system image if you have one. There are good and reliable models around from Intel, Plextor, Samsung etc....

At the rate you're going, drive should still be good for a few months. However, I'd suggest scouting deal sites for an SSD replacement.

Quite interesting to see SMART values on an old Indilinx Barefoot drive. Your SSD has a 10,000 P/E cycle count specification (50nm, I'm guessing) and average erase count is already at 8,398. It would certainly be interesting to see write amplification value. My guess (quick estimate):

Host Writes
(C7) 13,728,121,349 sectors * 512 bytes/sector = 7,028,798,130,688 bytes or 6,546 GiB

NAND Writes
(D0) 8,398 cycles * 64 GiB/cycle = 537,472 GiB

Write Amplification
537,472 / 6,546 = 82x
