I own a Sandisk Extreme SSD. It has been about 4-5 months that its 3 year warranty ended.
I have been using Sandisk SSD Dashboard application to monitor its health. Yesterday i upgraded the application to 126.96.36.199. When i just ran the app, It started saying the “Drive Health” is “Poor”. I was very worried so I ran both SMART Diagnostic Short Test and Extended test in Dashboard. It passed both. SSD life left is %99 . Also a 3rd party freeware app named CrystalDiskInfo is saying that the drive is healthy. BUT, the “Drive Health” in Dashboard still shows “Poor”!
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!
