    hi guys...

    Little panic at the moment.
    I dropped my SP3 i7 512gig ssd from 30-40 cm (watching Tube in bed)

    No problems or rattling etc.
    Downloaded the Seagate Seatools for window software and ran a "short DST" diagnostic and it failed!
    Software manual said it takes 20 to 90 seconds but my test took a few minutes...
    http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/downloads/seatools/docs/SeaTools for Windows.en-US.pdf

    it did pass all the other tests
    SMART test
    Short generic

    didnt do the long generic yet

    here is the software, can somebody else do the test and share their findings pls?

    i am truely worried now my ssd will fail me one of these days...do i have to worry now?

    edit: gonna install every known decent ssd diagnostic tool just in case :)

    for now SSDLife Pro (trail) says drive health is excellent and should last untill april 2024

    Samsung Magician software also showed good drive health status.

    Now INTELS Ssd Toolbox...does not work for oir samsung ssd

    Obvious question: Did it pass before the drop? Help file seems to be for much older Windows.

    needless to say i wouldn't panic if i did this test before but i havent, so i cant know

    makes me wonder if i even should be worried when reading this: http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php/topic/26592-testing-a-ssd/

    he did a DST test from the begining and it too failed...

    another software I tried: http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html
    Gave me 100% and good health


    Id really like to see owners here do the same test so i can be reassured :)

    The Sea Tools utility is a Seagate centric software meant primarily for their drives. Some of their algorithms might not be valid or compatible for all drives, intentional or otherwise. I would not worry. Your other software confirmed its health.

    allright, seems plausible :)

    I had a normal HD drive from an HP laptop that fell from a little bit higher and with a bit more speed (heavier laptop compared to the SP3) and it functioned perfectly...for 2 days, than I was fucked :)

    In my mind I will be rest assure that the fall didn't do any damage to my SSD if after 2 days I can still use it. :p


    Just to be complete, here some screenshots of the various diagnostic software:

    any physical shock that would damage the SSD would first shatter the screen all sorts of ways.

    If the screen didn't crack don't even worry about it.

    DST stands for Device Self Test, which is a Seagate-only routine that probably uses special Vendor Unique SATA commands.

    Since you don't have a Seagate drive, it will fail.
