How to Check NVMe SSD for Health, Help

I was given a used Gigabyte M.2 nvme 512GB drive. I had the opportunity to test it on my PC for 20-30 minutes before paying for it. The seller claims it has been in use for 1-2 weeks. What tests can I do to check the health of the drive?

NVMe is one of the very important storage devices for your computer. Whether you buy a new or used drive, you need to make sure it is in good condition.

If you want to check the health of your NVMe SSD, you can check its temperature, performance, the number of boot times, and the condition of its sectors. By checking the health of the SSD, you can get a clear picture of how well it performs on your computer and how long it will last.

For more accurate results, it is recommended that you use a reliable and professional partition management tool: EaseUS Partition Master Free, which can provide you with the above information about your NVMe SSD and identify any potential problems that may occur.
