I recently bought a caddy to use with a Kingston ssd to replace the dvd drive in my laptop. Everything works correctly except for one fact. While checking the SMART parameters I noticed that "unsafe shutdown count" value is almost same as power on counts. To be precise it is just one less than power on count. I tested & confirmed that after every shutdown/restart this "unsafe shutdown count" value increases exactly by 1. There are no errors in windows event log too. I know that some ssd/hdd caddy comes with a dip switch which helps in issues with sleep/restart/shutdown/high cpu usage even when idle when using such caddy but I am facing none of these issues. Only issue I am facing is this "unsafe shutdown count" with ssd in caddy on dvd drive port, hdd in primary sata slot show no such issue even after addition of ssd/caddy.

How bad is this issue for a ssd & would it help if I get a caddy with a dip switch & try different switch positions(though I doubt it)?

I did some more testing & these are the result:
1.If I do a normal shutdown via OS then on next boot the value of shutdown event remains unchanged.
2.If I put laptop in hibernation mode then on next boot again the value of shutdown event remains unchanged.
3.If I restart via OS or put the laptop in sleep mode then the value of shutdown event increases by 1.
