Recently, many users have reported that the Samsung 990 Pro SSD health is declining rapidly. For example, some users have lost 10 percent of their health in just one week. To analyze the cause of the Samsung SSD health decline more accurately, we need to know the SSD performance first. Samsung offers the Samsung Magician Tool but can only check for basic issues.

To better understand Samsung SSD health issues, we recommend using EaseUS Partition Master Free. This full-featured utility checks SSD temperature, S.M.A.R.T. status, and sector issues and provides additional repair features.

Then we can see the health report about the Samsung 990 Pro SSD. There are multiple reasons for performance degradation:

  • If the temperature is high, it may be caused by insufficient airflow or heat from nearby components.
  • If many bad sectors exist, it could be an SSD quality issue.

If there are bad file system issues for old drives, you can fix them via EaseUS Partition Master. If the health percentage of a new SSD starts to drop faster than normal, it's better to replace it.
