    SSD Toolbox 3.1.0 misreports Drive Health for 520 Series 480GB SSD

    scan80269

      I would like to report an issue discovered with the latest Intel SSD Toolbox 3.1.0.  With one of my Intel 520 Series 480GB SSD, Toolbox 3.1.0 displayed a drive health warning with short orange bar, despite 100% estimate life remaining.  Once I reinstalled SSD Toolbox 3.0.5, the drive health is back to good with full green bar.

       

      This has only been seen with one Intel 520 Series 480GB SSD.  Toolbox 3.1.0 reports good drive health with all my other Intel SSDs, including another two 520 Series 480GB and 320 Series 300GB & 600GB SSDs.

       

      Upon encountering this issue, I secure erased this 520 Series 480GB SSD, but the drive health warning in Toolbox 3.1.0 remained.

       

      Attached are screen captures showing the difference in drive health for this 480GB SSD between Toolbox 3.0.5 and Toolbox 3.1.0.
