"Power on hours" not being counted on my SSD..?!

Hello, i grabbed some crucial msata ssd and cloned my windows from the hdd to it. works fine however the "power on hours" count won't update in windows..!

I was told to do garbage collection so i went in the bios and let the unit idle there for 8h. when i did reboot, i saw the counter increased from 8h.

I let windows run for +2 hours but counter did not update.. What i did after migration : disabling prefetch, superfetch & cache. Any ideas?

It does seem that this might be a problem with some Crucial SSDs. This website shows a few others have the same problem.

Have you tried contacting Support at Crucial for a solution.

Have you tried contacting Crucial Support, they should have a website for you to be able to lodge your problem.

Isn't that what you asked just before, and what I answered?

OK, sorry I thought you had only read the items on the the website I had posted.

If Crucial Support are saying there is no solution as this stage it looks like you will have to live with it. While it may not provide information on the "power on hours", it probably wont cause any problems in the normal operation of the SSD.

They do not search much i guess.. Otherwise they'd have fixed it in firmware.. Since it's an issue quite a fee encountered. I wish I could try the ssd on another system..
