Hello, I have a Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD and HWiNFO is reporting warning/failure under S.M.A.R.T. in sensors; however, everything appears with green check marks in main.
The min remaining drive life is 1.0% and the average is 100.0% so I can conclude that the length of time which the failure occurs is very small, I have enabled the graphs regardless. It's worth noting that the SSD is connected to the board, X99-A/USB 3.1 and the chipset is in RAID mode. I believe it's recommended to use the drive in AHCI mode, but I don't know if that has anything to do with the situation.Martin said:This seems to be some occasional erratum because the failure would need to be 'sticky' and appear always, but instead it's only captured as the 'max' value.
How often does this happen, every time when you start HWiNFO, or after a while ? You might try to double-click to show a graph for that value to see whether there are some spikes, or enable sensors logging to see when exactly it happens.
Please let me know the results...
Martin said:The failure is reported probably due to the 1% remaining life reported by drive which seems to occur occasionally.
My original idea was that this is a read-out problem. But then I noticed that the "[B3] Used Reserved Block Count (Total)" parameter which can be used as an indicator of drive health reported actual value of 100 (which seems OK), but the worst measured value is just 1 (Worst: 1). So I think this is either a problem of the drive's firmware which doesn't properly monitor and report the status, or the drive is really occasionally having serious problems.
