    you can download the smarmontools rpm from a different PC unpack the smartctl app from the rpm (use 7-zip on windows or ark on linux) upt the unpacked binary application on a usb and run it from the live media
    you can find smartctl in
    Code:
    smartmontools-6.5-8.1.x86_64.rpm\smartmontools-6.5-8.1.x86_64.cpio\.\usr\sbin\smartctl
    the above address was copied from 7-zip running windows
    but as you have a 2nd hard drive why not install an OS on it temporally so you can check the condition of your ssd
    or try gparted as it should allow you to check and repair your filesystem if it's not hardware related

    ps
    according to the smartctl developers
    https://www.smartmontools.org/wiki/LiveCDs
    the opensuse rescue iso does come with smartctl (not sure about the kde/gnome live iso's) but it should be included in the full install dvd when booted as a rescue system
    but that was some time ago I'm not sure LEAP has it (it should but I don't install with a dvd/usb so I can't tell)

    I reinstalled opensuse 42.3, erasing all previous partitions. I had over 400+ software updates. It booted successfully with one major software issue. See post.

    smartctl can check the state of ssd's too not just magnetic drives
    smartctl can show the remaining lifetime of the ssd
    Code:
    sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdX
    will show the remaining lifetime of your ssd counting down from 100 to 0 (100 being a brand new and 0 being a dead ssd)

    This is another topic for BTRFS snapshots on laptops. Please follow me to the new post.

    Hi
    My own experience with OCZ drives refutes this I have been running
    btrfs/xfs for many years on multiple machines, I would surmise based on
    posts in these forums SSD issues have been based on Samsung devices...
    perhaps more popular? AFAIK some Samsung models are still blacklisted
    trim by the kernel....

    This is my oldest one... 45K plus hours...
    Code:

    Thanks to all for the help. I seem to be good shape for my SSD. I have all the info printed out for further reference. Also, I saved the pages to a flash drive.

    If it happens again on my main system, I will use smart monitor tools when needed. Hopefully, it won't and not need to post on here.
