As a routine, I ran the Intel SSD Toolbox today. Everything seems ok - the SMART tests all check out, estimaated life remaining at "100%". But the Drive Health bar is at an orange w/ a "warning" and it is saying "Drive Health Degraded". For the life of me, I cannot figure out what this means. Do I have to be concerned, or undertake further troubleshooting steps?
I have not noticed any issue w/ the drive.
My system is an Asrock X99/itx board w/ an Intel e5-1650-v4 CPU. The drive is an Intel SSD750 1.2 TB, firmware 8EV101H0.
The Toolbox generated an Excel spreadsheet as attached.
Any assistance would be appreciated!
