    Crucial Storage Executive Report.


    I have had my SSD for about two years (rough guess) and was wondering if "202 Percentage Lifetime Remaining" 98% is about average or above average for the statistical report presented by Crucial? Meaning, after about two years of owning the SSD, 98% Lifetime remaining is pretty good right? According to Crucial, it only degraded about 1% per year.

    I'll post the full readout here and wish to get some feedback if anyone sees something in the report that might be excessive and the possible steps I could take if any are necessary to extend the life of the SSD.

    Thanks for looking!

    I have an MX 100 128 GB capacity.

    4.5 years old.

    20.6 TB of writes.

    87% remaining.

    I'd say you are doing OK. As far as I know, the percent remaining is just an extrapolation of your total writes thus far compared to the rated endurance (TBW) of the drive. Doesn't mean a whole lot. It could quit in 10 seconds or continue working well beyond 0% remaining.

    I wouldn't give a second thought to it unless your writes get MUCH larger per unit of time---very unlikely for a home user.

    So basically, it is as I have read in the past. An SSD just fails without any relevance to the health report generated by the manufacturers software. In other words, those numbers are no sort of guide to the true health of the SSD as far as percentage remaining correct?

    Like anything electrical, it could fail at any time for known or unknown reasons.

    Some of the reasons would concern the amount of writes.

    Others reasons would have no relationship at all to writes.

    I had an Intel SSD fail purely because the copper cable connection point decided to fall out onto the carpet.

    If you want to worry, there's more to be worried about than writes or percentage indicators in SMART.

    The chances of you ultimately having a problem that would be related to writes or percentage life remaining are near zero.

    Perhaps the larger point is that the torture tests I've seen show that SSDs typically last beyond 0 percent. Manufacturers want to know your total writes so they might be able to deny your warranty claim if the TBW is exceeded within the warranty period.

    My drive has been out of warranty for over a year. At the 3 year point, the remaining life percentage was around 90. Now at 87. If it had failed at 2.7 years, Crucial could not have denied my claim on the basis of too many writes. Your drive may have a 5 year warranty? Looks like you will still have 80 plus left at that point.

    I've used 13% of my TBW. It will take me decades more to get to 0 remaining. There is zero chance I will be using the drive in 10 years, let alone decades.

    I honestly don't know the warranty period on the drive; however, as you pointed out, I probably won't be using this drive in ten years from now anyhow.

    The way I look as this in perspective is that this SSD is running on a 10 year old system that by all accounts is running on borrowed time and I have to realistically assume that the drive would more than likely outlast the other hardware at this point going by age depreciation of hardware components in general compared to the SSD's projected lifespan.

    If HP is still building computers anywhere near the reliability and dependability that they use to uphold ten years ago, I would buy another one in a heartbeat. Heck, I wish I could buy this exact same system (listed in my computer specs and the same aforementioned) with a better processor preinstalled and a larger memory bank. I currently only have 2 memory slots and would've liked to have opened up the case and saw four slots!

    @EyeInTheSky -

    You didn't mention what model and capacity of the Crucial SSD you are using.
    Give them a call. Mine has a 5 year warranty.

    Crucial Warranty Information | Crucial.com

    If you buy a higher capacity than you need, the SSD will last longer, even without Over Provisioning.

    The model of the SSD is listed in "My Computer" in the hard drive section. Crucial CT525MX300SSD1. I thought that was one of the first things you guys look at when helping someone. I see however that in "My Computer" in the hard drive section, the capacity of the drive was not referenced although the model name does give a hint. I will fix that after this post.

    It is a 525 Gigabyte drive of which only 523,246,989,312 bytes is actually usable of which I am currently only using 64.7 Gigabytes of the usable actual allocation of the drive.

    Specs of the drive are here: Crucial MX300 - Solid State Drive | Crucial.com

    The drive is no longer made, but firmware is still available through Storage Executive.

    As you can see in my models exact specs at the bottom of that page that 525 Gigabytes is the capacity but after installation, only 523,246,989,312 bytes are usable or allocated after installation which is 487 Gigabytes roughly.
