Total Host Writes is blank when using CrystalDiskInfo on PNY 120 GB ssd. How do I fix it or are there other programs that can show ssd's total host writes?

If your SSD is set to RAID in the BIOS instead of AHCI, it could potentially be hidden behind the Intel RST. Unfortunately the only fix for this I believe is changing the setting in the BIOS and reinstalling windows.


You could try using another application to read the S.M.A.R.T data like HWinfo and see if it shows up properly there.

I am in HWInfo, in the Drives section, which line does it say the total host write number ? And is it in GB or TB?

OP, are you talking about CrystalDisk MARK, or CrystalDisk INFO? You seem to have those confused.

Regardless, some SSDs do not expose the proper SMART parameters to display that info.

You could try upgrading to the newest version of CrystalDiskINFO to check.

CrystalDiskINFO, I typed the wrong one. I was using the latest version of the program. Still, its just blank.
