I want to stress test ssds so when I put one in a client's computer it doesn't come back to me in three months.  I use Seatools for Windows but it doesn't do the job.  I just downloaded Diskspd.  It's too complex for my needs. Is there any reasonably simple tool that I can set running for X amount of time to get a drive to fail if it's going to fail?  What amount of time would that be?  Without damaging the drive or significantly cutting down on the life of the drive.  I use a Dell Optiplex 7040 running Win10 Pro, Intel I5, 16GB RAM and EVO 960 NVME to test drives.
