I have a Kingston HyperX 3s 250gb SSD which I backup using ShadowProtect Desktop.
I have been having a few lock ups and blue screens lately so looked at restoring an older image of my drive.
That's when I noticed that The backups have been failing lately due to an I/O error.
It can only ne the SSD or the backup drive so I tried changing to another backup drive but the error still occurred.
so what with the crashes and this I/O error I really think my SSD is faulty. But the SMART says it all OK.
I checked for faulty sectors using HDTune and found 3 !
Is there a better way to test it?
The crashes sometimes happen soon after boot but sometimes like today I have had none!
I can never do the backup though that fault is always there.
OS is win 7
