Default NEW Damaged SSD - urgent!!!!!

Hi, just installed hd tune pro to see under the health tab that it says "reallocated sector count" has a current count of 85 and a status of warning.

and yet, i done an error scan and it showed no errors

also, ssdlife and crystal disk info both show my ssd health at 78%, i got this ssd only 15 days ago!

??????????????????????

I believe if any product becomes faulty within 30 days of purchase, as long as it's not your fault, you are legally entitled to a free repair or replacement.

Until you start seeing a drop in actual storage space, that number is normal. My Intel SSD had "bad" sectors when it arrived, but due to the nature of SSDs and the makers putting more memory in them and then simply remapping it as time goes on, you'll see programs like this one incorrectly reporting problems until they retune them for SSDs.

Unless you are having performance issues with the drive, or the usable file size is shrinking, it's not a problem.
