    Cristl disk info ssd index?

      I have Intel X25-M G2 80Gb ssd just 3 weeks old. I have installed Windows 7 and ssd toolbox.

      Till yesterday Cristdisk info show me that my ssd 100%good. today the index drop on 99% good.

      I have no reason for this situation.

      The counter says :

      Power on 200h

      Host writes 580Gb

      Trim is on.

       

      My question is: why this happend?

      If I use erase ssd does this menas that ssd disk fitness will return to 100%.

      Thank you.

          Hello, this is not an issue especially if you copy a big piece of information, I suggest you to install the latest version of the SSD toolbox version 2.0 and run the Intel SSD Optimizer and the System configuration tuner to keep the SSD in good shape.

            This is normal, the Intel G2 series can only endure 35TB writes in total, after it dies.

            Because you have written 580GB, the drop to 99% is normal.

            Mauriceb, please correct me if I'm wrong.
