Intel ssd Drive Health warning

Hi everyone! I less than 2 month ago bought intel 520 series SSD (180gb version) and today just installed new version of intel toolbox and it's showing health warning! any ideas? is it some kind of bug or i have to replace it?

I also compared it with another program which it says everything's fine!:D
thanks in advance!

  1. It is probably fine, in the toolbox where it indicates a drive health problem, check that SMART command detail to see if it indicates what the issue is that is causing the alert.
  2. when the last time you ran smart clean up??

    I do it every 4~7 days!the last time i ran it was 8 hours ago!
  5. It should be fine, sometimes they report wrong, check it with another tool like crystaldiskinfo and see what that says.
    Only really start to get worried once it starts re-allocating sectors

  7. Now that is weird... I am starting to doubt this version (v3.1.0) of the Toolbox as I am also having a little issue though not really a problem...

    Ignore where it says the Current and Worst of "100" the raw value shows that there are no re-allocated sectors yet so your fine
    Sounds like the toolbox software might at fault here
  9. I just installed previous version and it says that the drive health is good! i think that last version of toolbox is buggy!

    Thank you guys for quick replay! I would just stick with my previous version. :)
