I own a Sandisk Extreme SSD. It has been about 4-5 months that its 3 year warranty ended.
I noticed that in my last boot, it started with "Drive health: Poor", switched to "Normal". Then Poor, Normal and Poor at the final again! And these happened just in 20-25 min.
CrystalDiskinfo still says there is no problem. So does SMART tests of Dashboard app.
Which one should i trust? SMART results of Dashboard and CrystalDiskInfo ? Or Dashboard saying sometimes that Drive Health is Poor?
Thanks a lot!

execute code in terminal smartctl -x /dev/sda
(it is /dev/sda if ssd is your primary drive , sdb if its secondary drive)
you can see completed life of your drive from "percentage used endurance indicator" attribute (it will %100 when drive is near to death)
Seems to be ssd dashboard have pretty much issue with device health counters.
i have similiar issue , it cant report health very well. but smartctl works pretty good
