I own a Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB, using it for W10 and some games, as well as some programs and files.
On Samsung Magician, it says it has written 21TB, is it too much? How much can it take before breaking?
Thanks.

Is this your only drive?
Is it a new drive?

The 860 EVO has a warranty of:
"5 years or 600 TB TBW "

If you were to maintain that current usage, that equates to 10 years.
21TB - 4 months = 63TB/year.

If this is a new drive and install, that use curve flattens out after a couple of months. Like where you are now.
Evaluate it again at the 1 year point. I expect you'll be significantly under 60TB.
