Default My SSD is dying...

All is said in the title, my SSD is dying...

When I bought my ThinkStation, the vendor let a SSD inside, Samsung PRO 240.
The ThinkStation was used as a server, 24/7 full charge for 3 years (2015-2018).
So the SSD is 5 years old now, but starts to show hardware failures.

It started about 2 months ago, with some troubles when booting, sometimes with normal booting, sometimes with a 3x or 4x long boot delay after POST, as well with OpenBSD as with Windows.

A month ago, I had a storage hardware failure bsod when booting W10.

And yesterday, Windows crashed, and when booting, only a black screen showed up. Only a black screen, a mouse cursor, and... nothing else.

Fixed for now, but for how long ?
Damn, I have to buy a new SSD...

Well, it is consumer SSD. 3 years, 24/7 for moderate server load isn't terrible.

And it's the PRO version, the most reliable...

Fortunately, I have enough HDDs, so basically the SSD is only used to install the systems and applications, my documents are on dedicated drives.
