    DC S3500 has extremely high SMART "Program Fail (Chip)" ID 175. Is this normal or failing?

    CMG

      I have a 120GB DC S3500 SSD as the system disk in an X-99 based server running Windows Server 2012R2. The disk is directly connected to the motherboard, no RAID. I have not noticed any problems, but the SMART attribute for ID 175 "Program Fail (Chip)" is 1.7E10 and increasing rapidly. Attribute 171 "Program Fail Count" is zero (says this is "unknown" below but GUI of GMSmartCtrl has the label). SSD is less than 1 year old and has 900 hrs uptime. Please can someone let me know if this is indicative of an impending failure and needs to be replaced or not? Full details below

       

      thanks very much

      CMG
