Summary

Drive Health: This is based on the current value of the SMART attributes of the SSD and may report a different status depending on the attributes.

  • Good (Green): All SMART attributes are currently above their threshold levels
  • Warning (Orange): One or more SMART attributes have moved beyond the threshold and have reached the final value. It is recommended to back up the information and to consider replacing the drive
  • Critical (Red): A SMART critical warning has been triggered or the drive has encountered a critical error related to SSD degradation. It is strongly recommended to back up the data and consider replacing the SSD.
