Should I replace my SSD? I need to know Terabytes Written since buying my T460p.

My two year old  Windows 10 t460p came with a 512 Gig SAMSUNG MZ7LN512HMJP-000L7.  

 

I know SSDs have a lifespan after which they are more likely to fail, so I would like to know if have used over 50% of that lifetime.

 

 

But when I ran Samsung Magician 5.3.0 it said "This drive is not supported".

 

Is there other software that will give me the desired data?

This is a reasonable discussion:

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/find-how-how-much-longer-your-ssd-will-last/

 

Some of the tools don't work with NVMe drives (yours is SATA).

 

The reality is that for a given model, most will last a really ling time; some will last a reasonable amount of time, and once in a while, they get sick after a short time.  Makers publish MBTF numbers and things like that, which really don't help predict when yours will die, so it is best always to have a good backup plan

Re: Should I replace my SSD? I need to know Terabytes Written since buying my T460p.

crystalDiskInfo showed that I have already written 14 Terabytes.  

(I could not find the TBW specs for my drive, but a typical SSD warranty is for 70 TBW so I am about 20% there.

 

Thanks for the help.

Most (if not all) of the drives Lenovo sources from Samsung are NOT supported by the Samsung tools....

Something about the OEM deal the two companies have ... I guess.
