  • Recently, every time na nag rerestart ako ng PC, nag-rurun na siya parati ng chkdsk. From what I heard, nag rurun lang sya pag may something wrong with your system possibly failing storage, corrupted files etc.... Should I be concerned given na good health naman yung lumalabas with SSD Toolbox,CrystalDiskInfo and HDSentinel?

    it happened with my one of my 500GB HDD(storage) way back with my old rig running with windows 7. slow boot nung umpisa then nag chkdsk na sya parati, i pulled that suspected HDD out of the system then everything comes back to normal then.

    I doubt it is the SSD that is faulty. It is more likely that a mechanical HDD in your setup is causing the problem.

    That's because the "dirty bit" is set on a particular volume:

    How to Manually Clear or Set Dirty Bit on Windows Volume
    When a dirty bit is set on a volume, Windows automatically performs a disk checking the next time the computer is restarted. You can run the chkntfs command at the Command Prompt to check if a volume is dirty, but there is no way to clear the dirty bit unless you let Windows go through disk scanning at boot.





    The procedure to manually clear the dirty bit is described here:

    Of course the assumption here is that you've checked the disk(s) to make sure that there is actually no error. Also, letting the disk check finish should normally clear the dirty bit, so if you're cancelling it every time then it will not go away.

    Both storages are 100% health according on 3 programs that I use but I'm not certain if this is enough proof that they're still in good working condition.

    @Peorth

    I let it run as it is but whenever I restart, it's still there. Anyway, I was able to prevent it from running again. I guess my only concern is ..should I worry about my storages given they're 100% good health?

  • It might just be a Windows error but if you have a hard disk in your system then you might want to do a surface test to detect any bad sectors.

  • meron po b a sa inyo ginagamit yung mga built in nvme heatsink ng board? from what i read, mas ok daw dapat for ssd to be warm for it to operate in its best conditions and longer life
  • Ako gamit ko yung kasamang heatsink ng mobo ko. Wala namang problema so far.

    Kung mostly gaming pwede na MX500, seconds lang difference sa PCI-E 4.0

    Yes, yung SSDs work better pag nasa warm side. That said, vast majority ng SSDs rated to work from 0 to 70 C. Pero, surely at temperatures ng 70 C nagthro-throttle na yung SSD to prevent overheating. Most recommendations suggest na i-maintain ang SSD temperature below 50 C. Yung 1 Tb XPG SX8200 Pro ko hits 47 C even sa cool weather with no file transfer, pag continuous file transfer umaabot ng 69-70 C. Pero pag naka-on yung DIY active cooling system ko 41-42 C lang ang usual temperature.

  • Last Monday, I upgraded a client's laptop from a 1TB HDD to a 500GB WD Blue SATA SSD.

    Using Macrium Reflect Free, I was able to clone the first 3 partitions--EFI boot, windows reserved, and main Windows partition-- and skip the next 3 (empty D partition, and two for the OEM recovery). Even with just 90~GB used space in the C: volume, it took an hour and 15 minutes to clone. :O
  • ^ Ayos yung Macrium Reflect Free. Successfully cloned my 500GB OS ssd to a 1TB ssd last month.

    Gamit ko siya ngayon pang image ng OS at game drives ng PC ko to backups.
  • ^Yes okay na okay Macrium Reflect Free. Used it to clone the stock Kingston 128GB NVMe SSD of my Swift 3 to a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB NVMe SSD. I just extended the Drive C: partition using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free and all is working well up to now.

  • @awakeruze,

    Nasa USB 2.0 enclosure ba yung isang drive? Kinompute ko, around 20 MB/s average yun. Every month nagko clone ako from SSD to HDD as backup, around 40 minutes for 200GB (average speed 90 MB/s). Naka USB 3.0 enclosure yung HDD. :)
  • It was USB 3.0 AFAIK. That HDD was kinda slow--not rickety, but the owner was exasperated at how slow his laptop was (hence the SSD upgrade).
