Zonediver Posted August 16, 2017 Share Posted August 16, 2017 Hi folks, can someone explain the above term? This value is at 1046176 - but what? Tomatos? How can i convert this to MB or GB or how can i find out, how many GBs my SSD has already written? Thanks for your Help Link to comment

BRiT Posted August 16, 2017 Share Posted August 16, 2017 Take the value and multiply it by 32, that will give you how many mibs it has written. Divide it by 1024 to get how many gibs it has written. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mebibyte The mebibyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information.^{[1]} The binary prefix mebi means 2^{20}, therefore one mebibyte is equal to 1048576bytes = 1024 kibibytes. The unit symbol for the mebibyte is MiB. Technically a megabyte (MB) is a power of ten, while a mebibyte (MiB) is a power of two, appropriate for binary machines. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibit The gibibit is a multiple of the bit, a unit of information, prefixed by the standards-based multiplier gibi (symbol Gi), a binary prefix meaning 2^{30}.^{[1]}^{[2]} The unit symbol of the gibibit is Gibit.

Zonediver Posted August 16, 2017 Author Share Posted August 16, 2017 Thanks BRiT for your hint. I know all this - only the term "32mib" was confusing me - so i have to "multiply" it - i see The "meaning" of "write 32mib" was not really clear. In my case, the SSD TLC has written 33,477GB or 33,5TB - far away from the limit of 280TB - all clear now - thanks. Link to comment
