The SMART attribute B8h reports the status of the end-to-end data protection feature of the drive. Its normalized value starts at 100. When the drive hits the normalized value of 90, it enters into a pre-fail condition and needs to be replaced.
If the normalized value is in the range of 91 - 99, the drive is not yet in a pre-fail condition but requires monitoring. The following are recommended actions to monitor the drive's status:
Check the drive's firmware and if available, update it to the the latest version: Latest Firmware for Solidigm™ (formerly Intel®) SSDs
Perform a secure erase: How to Secure Erase a Soldigim™ (formerly Intel®) SSD with the Solidigm™ Storage Tool
If the SSD is already in the pre-fail condition (normalized value of 90), or an error message is shown, contact Solidigm™ Customer Support for further assistance.
