SSD Life analyzes how actively you use your solid-state drive and uses a special algorithm to calculate its estimated lifetime. Of course, the date of the lifetime expiration is corrected depending on how intensively you keep using your drive. The entire information about your SSD — from general (manufacturer, model) to technical (whether your drive/system supports TRIM) — is displayed in the main window of SSD Life. Sometimes you may need it to find out how many hours the drive has already been in operation, for example, when you buy a used SSD.
Brief and simple
1. We do not calculate the percentage of the drive health. The SSD itself calculates it and gives it to us. Or in other words, this data comes from the manufacturer of the drive.
2. The estimated lifetime is calculated depending on the amount of data written to the drive. If it is not calculated yet, it means that little data has been written to it. Simply wait a bit, it does not usually take more than a week (or two) after the first launch of the program.
Why is it impossible to calculate the date at once?
It's a simple mathematical problem: in order to calculate it at once, we need to know at least the date when you wrote data to the drive the first time, but unfortunately, drives do not provide this information. That is why we need some time after the first launch of SSDLife to monitor how intensively you use your SSD in order to determine its average load. And as soon as we can calculate the approximate average amount of data written to the drive per day, we will be able to determine the time it will take you to use the entire lifetime capacity of the drive, which means we will be able to calculate the date when the lifetime of the SSD will be over. Of course, this date will keep changing depending on how the intensity of the drive usage changes.
