Attached below is my OCZ SSD's crystaldisk report:


It's only 99% good, does it mean that my SSD is deteriorating and dying?

No idea but the remaining life looks good if the 99 is years:) Not so good if it is seconds!!

Well, everything wears out eventually.

I'm guessing the "Remaining Life" parameter slowly goes down as the SSD ages (something in the firmware would determine how that works) and CrystalDisk is picking up on it. I wouldn't worry about it.

looking at the pic its been on for 5461 Hours, which rounded is 277 Days, so for a SSD to drop 1% in that time is to be expected.

Think of it like new tires on your car, the moment you start to drive away they start to wear.

To sum it up, not to worry about it?!

Pretty much. Just keep a backup of the important stuff as always but that looks fine to me.
