I got this machine around the middle of January this year and it's been great, but I was scrolling through HWiNFO64 about a week ago and it estimated that my SSD had 23% remaining life. It's now at 19% and seems to be losing 1% every two days or so. CrystalDiskInfo doesn't return any information, SSDLife says my drive is at 100%, AIDA64 gives me nothing, Toshiba's SSD Utility says "no drive available", and I can't find an option to enable SMART in the BIOS.
I asked on the HWiNFO forum and Martin himself says it's pulling this information from ATA Statistics. ATA Statistics is providing the wear level and HWiNFO64 is subtacting that from 100. The machine is still performing great. If I hadn't accidentally stumbled onto that I wouldn't even have noticed anything was wrong. So I'm wondering what I should do. Should I be concerned? Get ready to replace it?
I also noticed something that might be related (but if it isn't just disregard it). It's number 4 in this post.
