Default How much data has been written on your SSD?

Mine shows 11.1TB in 311.8 days (using HWInfo64 smart monitoring analysis)
Drive is 840EVO SSD (120gb).
Drive remaining life is at 92%.
Trying to figure out if this is within normal range or if I'm using the drive too excessively. I mainly use the SSD for Windows. larger programs are installed on a spindle drive.
Wonder how long this thing will last before it starts crapping out.

How do you access the SMART analysis in HWinfo64? I can't figure out how to do it?

I guess it doesn't report the same info with my drive (Samsung 960 Evo).

I've got 6559 GB written in 1524 hours. (63.5 days if you divide it by 24)

No report of remaining drive life, but I guess it's probably high.

The wear levering count is the remaining drive life.

That seems like a lot of activity for just a system drive. My system is almost 4 years old now, all SSD's and only one of them is below 92% (I have one at 91% in almost 4 years).

4 years power-on runtime?

if i calculate data written per day , it averages to about 30gb per day (11tb in 313 days).
That seems kind of excessive to me. how do I track what applications are causing these massive amounts of writes?



Edit:
but then again this site(https://www.ontrack.com/blog/2018/02...s-really-last/) says that an average office user writes 10-35gb/day.

Check to see if Shadowplay/GFE is writing temp files to your ssd for its instant replay function.

That's what dick blasted the MX100 I posted and why the writes are so high back before I caught it when I used an Nvidia card.

I'm not sure how to see my actual "power on" time, but I'm sure it's over 1 year given the age of the computer and how much I use it:

if you run hwinfo without checking any boxes on the first popup window,



you will see this window



...click on Drives, then select your drive. SMART info is going to be on the right pane at the very bottom.

Never used shadowplay /GFE .
I have a feeling it's Chrome. I'm going to move the temp/cache folder to another drive and see how it goes.

If the drive is kept mostly full there will be excessive write amplification due to garbage collection.

That won't provide an exponential amount of additional writes. I doubt you'd even notice the difference unless you are monitoring frequently.

Check to see if Shadowplay/GFE is writing temp files to your ssd for its instant replay function.

That's what *** blasted the MX100 I posted and why the writes are so high back before I caught it when I used an Nvidia card.
My instant replay is off so who knows .

I've had this drive for a few years now.

4.02 years 35190 hours for the 500GB with the crazy written drive that's my OS drive.

2.47 years 21598 hours which is pretty much a Steam/Game drive.
