Thanks for your message.
No, I'm afraid I can confirm that there is absolutely no bug here but the opposite: Hard Disk Sentinel does exactly what it should: detect and reveal possible changes, degradations - when (and especially if) these are usually ignored by other tools.
Please check the article suggested in the text description:
which describes that in most cases the issue is related to SATA cables or the SATA connections.
Sometimes other factors (for example overclocking, generic system overheat - not the SSD temperature but CPU/chipset) can cause troubles. I do not really think that the PSU or power cables can cause it in your system (but maybe, I've seen similar with some modular PSUs even if over 1000 W).
In some cases the issue is related to the disk controller (chipset) or its driver: I'd check if there is an update for the SATA controller/chipset driver too.
Alternatively, you may try to connect the SSD to different SATA port on the motherboard, just for a test.
Some SSDs / hard disk drives are more sensitive for this - so it is possible that a different model/brand may not show/record communication errors.
Comparing to a different model/brand usually gives false assumptions...
Other tools (especially the manufacturer-specific tools) happily ignore such issues and report only if an error-threshold reached (so warranty replacement is required or not) exactly to prevent THIS kind of questions from users
Those are not aware of stored data, they do not care minor issues which can cause data corruption/data loss - especially if these are in most cases outside the scope of the disk drive: the operating environment causes that.
Please note that if you replace the cable, check/fix connections - the errors still remain displayed because the SSD records all problems in its lifetime and does not "know" that the cable changed. You'd need to manually clear the error counter (see the above link for details) in order to acknowledge them and be informed about possible new problems only. The goal is to do NOT have new errors recorded.
> I have seen numerous comments regarding Hard Disk Sentinel showing increasing Error counts so I don't know if it is a software bug, hardware issue, or what????
Thanks, good to hear - as generally this is exactly why Hard Disk Sentinel designed: to detect and reveal the possible problems - when they are ignored by others.
I understand that if somebody hear "bad news" he may want to ignore that, but this does not really fix the problem....
