SSDLife Keeps You Informed of Your Solid-State Drive's Health and Lifespan

We all know solid-state drives take a bit of care, so if you want to keep track of how your SSD is faring health-wise, free utility SSDLife will let you know.

While lots of newer SSDs have fewer lifespan-related problems than older ones, it’s nice to keep an eye on how your drive is doing. SSDLife will let you know how many times your drive has been powered on, written to, what its health and S.M.A.R.T. status is, and even give you an estimated lifespan of the drive. Of course, if you’d like to extend the drive’s lifespan, you can always use a tool like Intel‘s previously mentioned Solid-State Drive Toolbox (as well as Windows’ built-in tools) to make sure you’re getting the most out of your SSD.

SSDLife is a free download for Windows only. You can also purchase a $20 pro version that will scan your drive at scheduled intervals.
