    For Wear Levelling Count

    Total Host writes =60TB
    Power on Hours =24000

    Im surprised ive hit a limit through normal use as windows 10 boot drive?

    Is this a definite issue and notice of imminent failure?

    It's an MLC drive, you'll probably get a few PB's of endurance out of it, I wouldn't be worried,

    You’re not going to cause any probs with 60TB of writes. Or 600TB for that matter.

    thats what i thought but WLC is producing a smart summary status of "bad" which the bios is noticing at boot time.

    60TB is quite high for a 'normal' use at a windows 10 boot drive. I've used the same ssd as my main boot for 6 years and it's now at 30TB with double the power on hours.

    However 60TB writes is nothing to worry about in terms of 256GB flash endurance. Can you disable smart in boot? It's an option on my X99 Pro.

    thanks, will take a look at smart disable on my asus x99 usb 3.1 bios,...ive recently remembered that the drive also supports a boot disk for a virtual machine, so that perhaps accounts for the higher than average utilization.
