Specs: Windows 10, Intel Core i3-6100U, 2.30GHz / 4.00GB RAM
hi, I am looking for some help.I have Lenovo Yoga 510 laptop with a Samsung MZYTY128HDHP-000L2 SSD, intel core i3 inside. On my laptop it has come up with an error from the intel rapid storage technology, saying SATA SSD on controller 0, Port 0: At risk (SMART event). Running a Lenovo diagnostics showed it has a failure of Storage: short self test & Smart status test. Everything else seems to be ok. My laptop hasnt packed in yet but from what I have read this can mean my SSD could fail at any point. Lenovo themselves said this isn't an issue but I am not convinced! Samsung who made the SSD said Lenovo are better placed to help me. I also contacted Intel who told me to go to forums. I remember using this site years ago so was hoping someone here can help.
So far:
I have backed up all my photos and documents etc onto usb sticks in case it does fail.
I have downloaded Samsung wizard but for my SSD most of the options said they don't support my SSD (I guess it's too old!)
I have done basic things like clear cookies, disk defrag, checkdisk check.
Thankyou for any help or advice.

I don't know why the tags came up "Sony / 128mb memory stick", that was from a previous question years ago!

Replace the SSD ASAP. If all you need is 128GB, they're about $25.

I would replace the SSD ASAP as well. If you cannot replace it immediately and have an eternal hard drive with enough space on it, I would make an image of the disk so if it fails you can image the new drive with it instead of having to do a complete reinstall of Windows and everything else. This is better and faster if your system is otherwise running right than reinstalling, updating, getting drivers, activating, reinstalling your preferred programs, resetting your preferences, and then reloading all of your stuff from back ups.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

SSD Defrag??? You mean optimization I hope!! It should be impossible to "analyze" your SSD in Win10.

As already mentioned, your SSD starts to degrade. Time to work on a replacement.
