Same problem happened to my SSD 330 120GB with toolbox 3.1.0!!
SMART status was good on 3.0.5 right before the upgrade.
Hello, I can confirm too that the exam same problem happens with my SSD 330 120 gb with version 3.1.0.
I'm waiting my second SSD tomorrow, a 520 120GB and let you know if this happends for the new drive.
Intel SSD Toolbox 3.1.1 has resolved this issue, and I no longer get the Drive Health warnings with 520 series SSDs that I reported previously.
Yes, that warning must be related to a problem noticed by a PC hardware review web site, in a review of the Intel 335 SSD. During the testing, they wrote a large amount of data to the SSD, but not so much that it would affect the health/lifespan of the SSD. They saw a significant decrease in the reported life of the SSD, and reported that to Intel. Shortly thereafter, we have an updated Toolbox.
I was not aware this also affected other SSDs, such as some 520s.
I am having the same problem with my Intel 320 SSD.
Everything used to be great and then Drive Health went from 100% to 50%.
Estimated life remaining is still 99%-100%.
According to the SMART details, B8 went crazy:
Is this what is causing this?
Do you guys also suddenly have problems with B8?
Should I RMA my drive?
MWI is still 99% -> E9, Media Wearout Indicator, 0, 99, 0, Ready for use.
Your SSD is fine; no RMA required.
Version 3.1 of the Toolbox was incorrectly reporting the data.
Toolbox 3.1.1 has been released which should correct your problem.
