Thanks for replying to my question. However, I would like for you to elaborate on the "Host Writes Smart Tribute".... This is a terminology that I have never heard of. I would assume this is some sort of "tally of writes to the drive", am I correct? If not, can you please tell me what this is/means? And lastly I also assume this is available to me through some sort of Intel test software?
I am sorry for not including such information.
The SMART attribute Host Writes (E1) reports the total number of sectors written by the host system.
You can take a look at it by clicking on SMART Details from the Intel® SSD Toolbox.
