Hi,

I just wanna ask for some tips on how can I prevent having a high average of writes per day? I think this is the reason my SSDs health is dropping quickly?

When I was checking on my HDD sentinel "Disk Performance" I was surprised that I'm averaging 40GB(40,171MB) per day.

So I started changing my download location and changing location on applications that are using my SSD's write.






This is how I usually start my PC with temperatures of my (Storage, CPU, GPU) (HWinfo, Hdd sentinel) on my taskbar
and also a Google Drive app that I usually sync my files to on my cloud storage every day but I don't usually sync my files.



Most of the time the only thing that my SSD is used is on browsing, sometimes video chat on Microsoft teams and some smalls files copying.

Power ON time - 9 Days, 3 Hours.
40GB per day.

This is a new drive, the OS drive?
What size/make/model is it?

Being a NEW drive, you see a lot of write cycles in the first few days/weeks.
This flattens out after a while.

That "40GB per day" will NOT be the same in a month or two, and thereafter.

Yes, this is a new drive. it's Kingston A2000 500GB

I have a friend who has similar storage as mine and it's been around with him for 3 months now. but the health has never dropped from 100

This is the Disk performance from his storage

40GB per day is pretty high for a consumer computer.
Not necessarily.
A brand new OS drive, you're still setting things up. A lot of writes.
Plus, watching a lot of utube vids.

This is like watching the gas mileage mater on your car.
Overall, the car will get 35mpg average, over a year.

But when you accelerate up the onramp, you see 11mpg on the meter.
"OMG! I only get 11MPG! My car is broken. What can I do???"

With a new drive, you're still on the on ramp.

I don't think you can compare writes per day.
Your friend may use their machine 4 hrs per day and you use yours 8 hrs per day.
Apples and oranges?
