How to Check the Health of SSD in Ubuntu

If you're using a SSD (solid-state drive) for the Ubuntu machine and it is starting to get wonky, this is one way to look into the health of SSD to see whether it is time to change a new one.

1. In Ubuntu, open the “Disks” application. On the left pane, choose the primary hard disk drive.

2. On the right, click on the “Cogs” icon and select “SMART Data and Tests…”.


3. From the window that show up, you will be able to see the status of your SSD.


Note: In most cases, it'll notify you if this detects problem with the SSD, which means you don’t must check it often.
