Hi,

I record the SMART Attribute data of some critical drives periodically. I've noticed that on a new 860 EVO 250GB (Model MZ-76E250) put in service early in 2018 the Weart leveling Count (attribute# 177) has been going up from 0 to 12 today. It was 0 at first, then went to 2 several months later, then to 10 months later, and today I see it's 12. Thewear leveling attrubute of most manufaturers is stated as a percentage of 100 (with 100 being a new SSD). For example, a 92 would mean it's 8% used/depleted. For some reason, did Samsung reverse this and the 12 I'm seeing is really 88 (ie. 100 - 12 = 88).

Thanks for your help.

Regards . . .

 

P.S. Just an fyi for Samsung: It took me 15 minutes just to find the SSD discussions were in "Monitors and Memory".  I know SSDs have memory inside them, but every other IT person I know considers Memory to mean memory sticks, and SSDs to be storage devices. I've never thought of monitors and memory as being in the same component or peripheral class. HTH.

Hi,

 

May I ask if this forum just for non-technical retial how-to's? If yes this is mainly retail, can someone direct me to your SSD forum that can handle more technical querries?

 

The SSD in question is still under warranty. That means I could have just opened a private support case to get this answer. However I thought this info would be valuable to the community in general, as Samsung appears to using a non-standard enumeration for Attribute #177 on this SSD.

 

I apprecate any direction on this thread.

 

Regards . . .
