Re: Brand New Replacement 128GB Kingston SSD getting 'failing' report by Disk Utility
Same thing happened today.
Been keeping an eye on it with Disk Utility.
Upon morning bootup Disk Utility reports SSD failing with 75°F temp and 8 minutes later it warmed up to 90°F and red light went green reporting all is A-OK!
Checked right now and temp is 38°C/100°F which seems to be the temp range this SSD runs at.
It appears it takes 8 minutes to 'warm up' which I never heard of happening with SSDs!
Those low 75°F appear to set off 'out of parameter' readings that turns the red light on with Disk Utility saying SSD is failing.
