SSDLife/HDDLife are nice but don't see M.2 SSD's, which is fatal if (as usual) that is your boot drive. Is there a similar program that does see M.2 drives? I am using Windows 10.

The SSD manufacturers have diagnostic tools for their disks. So go to the SSD manufacturer's website and download the corresponding tool for your model. Those tools also check whether the firmware is up-to-date and allow you to upgrade it etc.

Um, good idea. I discovered that my PC already has Samsung Magician installed. It worked fine for both the M.2 and the SATA SSD's. SSDLife has some features Magician doesn't have (such as lifetime prediction, notifications, etc.) but Magician is adequate.
