    Intel 520 Series SSD failing?

    intelssd

      I am having some problems with my (Linux) machine and they might be related to the SSD. I ran smartctl to check the drives and some results worry me.


      First the "power on hours" is over 900000. Second, the "uncorrectable error count" is over 135 million and rising. Is it an indication my drive is failing or is smartctl interpreting data wrong? Also, how can I test my SSD?


      See below the complete output.
