I'm getting ready to sell a pair of 120GB Mushkin Chronos drives & would like to know if it's possible to calculate the remaining theoretical life from the drive writes???
Part of the S.M.A.R.T. data appears to have been wiped when I updated the firmware on these drives. They were used in a RAID-0 configuration for 2 years & have been sitting unused for the past year.
Here's Crystal Disk Info 6.1.14 data from one of the drives: Host Read / Write at the top right of the image seems about right, as does Power On Hours, but Power on count is WAY off, should be roughly between 200 & 300.
Surely, after more than 2TB of writes, the drive should be somewhere under 100% life remaining right ???
The administrator has disabled public write access.
