I finally have registered on this forum, intentionally and primarily for this thread to express the same problem ONLY
with HwInfo64 having the same Kingston-branded (HyperX 240 GB) SSD with similar model. I didn't want to start a new thread as this one covers my problem nicely.
I got my SSD as used from my friend and he said that he has used it normally without any abnormal incidents. Since I got it, I got no major crashes, BSODs or file integrity failures and can confim it seems to work normally, too.
However, as CrystalDiskInfo and many other (including Kingston Toolbox stated in first post) programs claim that my SSD is fine and its remaining life is even still %100 despite having some "aged" bad blocks which is normal.
But after I run HwInfo64, I noticed the following warning about "Number of Reported Uncorrectable Errors
" on drive properties which I highlighted inside red rectangle on the screenshots attached, and I can confirm that this value keeps increasing.
However as you can see, this drive has about 45 TB Total NAND Writes and about 21 TB Host Writes which means about 2.15 Write Amplication and it is fine, too. I started to see that this value keeps increasing when I launch Hwinfo64
, which is suspicious too.
So, what is the problem that ONLY
Hwinfo64 shows about Uncorrectable Errors? SMART Table
with BB (hex) SMART
field shows ZERO Uncorrectable Errors
as you can see, either in HwInfo and in other programs, which is weird.
Should I still surrender and worry?
kindly had contacted me via his e-mail to tell about the issue which is a Standard ATA value which should be reported correctly. But this value is reported ONLY
by HwInfo64 among all the other tools I tried ever.
Hope to see an relaxing and satisfying explaination further.
Note: Attaching corresponding screenshots. Drive is attached to Dell Latitude SATA 3 port in RAID mode using Intel RST Raid driver.
