Question M.2 SSD "Health" is 90 percent after 90 days. Should I be worried ?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Is that health showing up on Crucial's Storage Executive Tool or another app? Does the SSD have any pending firmware updates? if you're on Windows 10, checka nd see what Task Manager's process monitor shows, i.e, Disk Usage.

Your picture indicates 24 hours a day operation for 90 days.

It also indicates 25 terabytes of writes in 90 days; thats about 100 per year.

That is quite high. I write only about 6 terabytes a year.

So you have an unusual use case, writing much more than most people.

I would NOT be in a panic, but you might have problems with a warranty claim if you ever had to make a claim.

But SSDs usually last well beyond their rated TBW. I have no idea what the TBW rating is on that drive.

I would continue to use it, realizing I am writing an unusually large amount of data.

All I know is what is in that picture of the Sabrent drive.

Those figures may be accurate or may be bogus. I have NO idea.

It also shows nearly 900 powers on in 90 days.

2157 hours is almost exactly 90 days, so I assume 24 hours a day operation.

It could be a Crystal Disk Info error.....I have NO idea.

If the numbers are correct, you apparently have some stuff going on that you don't know about.

Thanks for explaining

It may well be that the Sabrent is NOT the drive you are complaining about?

In that case, you would need to scroll to the correct drive in Crystal Disk Info.

Crucial P2 2TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD Up to 2400MB/s - CT2000P2SSD8 2TB Version
Here is link of a snap on crystal disk infohttps://mega.nz/file/9CRkDLaS#_YHA5bMPH0pqGv3y-g8W8cWfKy876bHwcR7ydF_kB7o
Your pic is showing 11.5GB/hr going to the ssd.
I don't know what is normal but I see 1.5GB/hr going to my ssd.

It's also a little confusing when you say a crucial unit and then show a sabrent pic.

The 90% is a health rating based on the SSD's remaining life. However it looks a little bit low to me based on how much you've written. For a Crucial disk you'll get a more accurate reading from Crucial Storage Executive. You've done a lot of writes in a fairly short space of time, if your not running any I/O intensive workloads then I suggest you leave the Task Manager open but on the details tab add the column 'I/O bytes written'. Alternatively you can use Process Explorer and that will tell you how much each process is writing, I would just leave it open all day.

Recently I had an issue with my machine writing up to 1TB a day, it wrote over 80TB to my main drive in a short space of time. After investigating I discovered it was Kaspersky Antivirus background drive scans doing it, unfortunately it was by design and unfixable. I looked at a few anti virus programs and found that it's quite common for them to write large amounts of data to the OS drive when doing a full scan of a big drive. The only one that didn't was Norton so I've switched to that, probably not you issue but worth a check if your not intentionally running heavy workloads.

Thanks I will look into that I formated my pc and I use the inti virus that comes inside.

Imagine how good PC should have be to not notice miner in background... Well, maybe if he have water cooling though, because air coolers start to raise fan speed pretty damn fast with miner in background
I do check the temps in my pc and specially cpu and gpu. But now I have to check always it seems
