After installing my Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSD m.2, it was reported that it's Health Status was “Bad” according to the Diskgenius App S.M.A.R.T. Information. The Samsung Magician App. claims the SSD was “Good”. After installing Windows 10 on this SSD, the computer would not boot, where as it would boot from a different SSD (Crucial P5 3D NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB). Diskgenius still clamed the 970 EEVO was bad and Samsung Magician still claims it to be good. All drivers are up to date.

CPU Intel Core i7-9700
GPU Nvidia GTX 1650S (Super)
SSD WDC WDS100T2B0A-00SM50 1TB
SSD Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB 1.0 TB
SSD WDC WD40EZAZ-00SF3B0 4TB
HDD WD Red 4TB (2013)
RAM TEAMGROUP-UD4-2400 2x8GB
MBD MSI B360 GAMING PLUS (MS-7B22)
CASE Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming
POWER Seasonic FOCUS GX-750, 750W

Anyone know why this happes or how to fix it?

If you have had success with the Samsung SSD 970 EVO, please describe what was done. Did you install it a RAID device?

Thank you for your reply. DiscGenius reports its S.M.A.R.T. Information as a text file and on the screen. The text file contains more information, so here is a copy. I when I said the SSD was “Bad”, I was refering to the health status.
