SDSSDA120G increased retired block count

Hi folks,

 

Just checked the smart status of my SDSSDA120G running ubuntu server.

I used smartctl to check itss values:

root@fhem:~# smartctl -A /dev/sda
smartctl 6.6 2016-05-31 r4324 [x86_64-linux-4.15.0-58-generic] (local build)

As you can see there a currently 212 retired blocks now and 28% Reserved space available?

When I checked these values 2 days before it had 198 retired blocks and 33% of Reserved space.

Also Reported uncorrect has risen from 36588 to 42838.

 

Is it time to replace /RMA this device? It still pass the test though...
