On the SMART drive health/status scan (for an SSD drive), one thing "TA Increase Count" is flagged up, with a value of 97. What is it actually a count of?
The SSD is a Crucial SSD. When I'm next on the computer I'll copy and paste the detailed analysis done by Speedfan.
The PC concerned has had times recently when it's been running really slow, one aspect I was looking at was whether it could be the SSD starting to die. Don't think any more that the extreme slowness is down to the SSD. I know it's not the CPU as I used an official Intel program to check the health of the CPU. I believe that the problem with extreme slowness was probably some glitch with Windows.
