Samsung 840 EVO read speed drops on old-written data in the drive - Page 125

post #1241 of 3279
Just finish running the tool. I had a pop up come up twice regarding something about Intel but I just hit okay and the process finished.

Noticeable decrease in my boot time. Just like new biggrin.gif

Any idea what's the meaning of this?

Been getting some jittery performance on hdtune as well after the firmware update and restoration. And now this..

Samsung magicion, ssd life and aida64's smart section are not giving a warning like this, although the data is same. worst 1 threshold 10 current 100...

Do I need to worry?

That can't be good. Time to back up!

Ziggy, have you got adequate OP space on the drive?

What's the op space?

I have around 50 GB free on the disk atm.

Edit:

Oh well now I see that op means over provisioned. So the answer is no. I checked the Samsung Magician and the over provisioned space is set to 0.

I'm getting this error as well.



Doesn't show up on my other drive I updated.

The thing is only hdtune gives that warning. I tried Samsung Magician, ssdlife, aida64, hdsentinel and crystal disk info so far and none of these have the warning. But it is still worrying...

Has anyone using the FX chipset (including the "SB 950" which, as far as I know, is really just a rebadged SB 850) been able to run the drive restore utility without having to switch to the MS AHCI driver?

I'm not sure about the FM2 platform (which really does have a newer "Southbridge"), but with the AM3/AM3+ platform, it is my guess that even with the latest "14.9" drivers installed, everyone has to switch to the MS (generic) AHCI driver to run the drive restore utility. (It seems even the "latest" AHCI driver for SB 850/950 is a year old now.)

In other words, I believe Samsung is lying when they say "supports latest driver".

Of course, once the update was done, this allowed for an opportunity to get benchmarks on the MS generic AHCI, then go back to the AMD AHCI, reboot, and get a benchmark using them. (For those curious, the difference (on my system) is about a 10 to 15% across the board increase in I/O rate using the AMD drivers.)

Oh, and speaking of the "hang" at 15% with the driver warning message underneath: Samsung did a poor job designing the U/I for the tool. Even though the accompanying documentation shows a screen-shot of the screen, and says words to the effect of "If you get this, you need to change to the MS AHCI driver"), that's no replacement for proper U/I coding. The application should make the following things immediately clear

1. The restore process has stalled, pretty much before it even began
2. The process will not continue / cannot complete until you (the operator / user) perform a corrective action
3. Said corrective action involves swapping out your chipset specific AHCI driver for MS generic (rebooting your computer in the process)

The fact that people (myself included) aren't immediately made aware of these facts by the application is due to horrible design. Even if it just popped up an error code (like: "Process cannot continue. Error Code 10. Please refer to documentation for corrective action.") this would be much preferable to the current action.

mine seems to be hanging at 15% is something wrong?

Do I have to replace the AMD drive with Microsoft drivers? isn't one slower than the other?

Well the problem that I see is that there are no recorded instances on DATA.
The CURRENT value is 100 on health and thats probably the max value, 100, 200 or 255 is usually what you have out of the box so the fact that is sees 100 on teh Current value suggest that no blocks have been used and thats supported by DATA that sees 0. They should in total give you 100 if added up.

THRESHOLD is the lowest you should drop to before SMART warns you of an imminent failure. Since blocks can be used up and not created there is no logical reason why you have a WORST of 1.

So WORST dont add up at all. It should be 100 to. Some attributes can go down and then up. Hard drive Spin Up time for example. The motor can spin up faster one day then another. But I cant see a logical reason for you SSD to use up blocks and not record them but then also some how find new spare blocks.

So there seems to either be some problem reading SMART data with that program or the SMART data in the SSD is corrupted some how.
