Hello ngocan84,

Checking the SMART Details from the SSD, it is working correctly. The difference in the reported size does not seem to be an issue in the SSD.

As I mentioned before, Intel® SSD's have a overprovisioned space to be used for additional features and enhanced performance, this space is not available to the user. This space can be modified with 3rd party tools to increase overprovisioning or to match a specific drive size. In this case, it seems this was modified in your drive in the past, causing the usable drive size to be 144 GB.

In this case we advise you to contact the Place of Purchase, or the previous owner of the drive since these types of changes are not supported by Intel.
