    SSD health

    Anyone here recommend a free program that will help me keep an eye on the health of my SSD?

    Current usage, expected lifespan based on read/write, etc

    Have seen a few but hard to find any reviews on them.

    Thanks

    Honestly if you have a good ssd the only monitor you need is your "Computer" window that says how much free space you have.

    Expected lifespan: A long time.

    CrystalDisk gives you some decent info, and any program that monitors the standard S.M.A.R.T. stats that all drives support.

    Many drive manufacturers produce their own maintenance utilities, what brand/model did you get?

    Should be a utility that came from the manufacturer.

    Installed on your computer, you can see the basic usage of SSD is not particularly malicious damage, it can use for a long time.
