The problem pc only have 4gb ram, i am guessing it borrows ssd for page file, owner dont download that often

Other symptom is os being so sluggish, takes 10s or so to right click anything

According to the Tom's review -- https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crucial-bx500-ssd,5377.html you have written about 25% of the total lifetime writes.
There is no way to predict the failure time for a disk that has no cautions on CrystalDiskInfo. It could be 5 years it could be tomorrow.
You should always assume it could fail tomorrow and do appropriate backups.

Upgrade the ram.
Page file usage will drop and the sluggishness may get better.

Your average is 1.2GB/hr which is good.
