Hi MUlHa,

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel® communities.

 

The Available Reserve Space attribute reports the number of reserve blocks remaining. This value starts at 100 and then it decreases until 0. The threshold value is 10, so you are getting the error because the current value is 8% of available reserve space.

 

We can try to fix it by doing a couple of suggested actions, however in case the issue persists, you should contact the place of purchase for a replacement or to get a new drive. Please also notice that your drive is using the firmware LTVi, which means you have an OEM drive.

 

An OEM drive is an Intel drive that has a special firmware developed by an OEM, for example HP*, Lenovo, Dell*, etc. If I’m not mistaken, the firmware LTVi corresponds to a Lenovo* firmware, so in case the issue is not fixed after the suggestions below, you should contact Lenovo* to get a possible replacement if the warranty still applies.

 

Having said this, let’s try to perform the below suggestions:

 

  1. Please get first the full SMART report using the Intel® SSD Toolbox. You can download the tool from the following site: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28447/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Toolbox. To export the SMART data just click on the Export button at the lower right corner. Then upload the file in your response.
  2. Additionally, please run the Intel® SSD Optimizer which is a feature included in the Intel® SSD Toolbox. You will see the option at the upper left corner in the Intel® SSD Toolbox window.
  3. If the issue is not fixed, please try to run a low-level format of the drive. This process will delete all data in the drive but may fix the issue, so make sure to back up the data before doing this process. The following article includes some third party tools that you can use to perform the low-level format process: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006198/memory-and-storage.html

 

Please try this and let me know the results.

 

Have a nice day.
