    Intel SSD 520 180GB: Huge Power-Off_Retract_Count: risky?

      There are quite some threads on this forum about the Power-Off_Retract_Count like https://communities.intel.com/thread/55642

      Unfortunately I don't have any warranty; every time I shut down, it counts: HP 2560p with i7 2620m, Debian stretch). I have also tested the ssd in a DVD sata caddy in the 2560p, the SSD is the only drive!

      Any hints?
      Even tested with a second computer (Asus dual core): exactly the same situation (Debian stretch and Lubuntu 18.04 LTS

      Is it risky to use this ssd? I don't have any problems apart from these smart values...

      The latest HP bios is installed and the latest 520 firmware as well. AHCI is set on bios-level. SSD is optimized in Windows 10
