SSD and Samsung Magician TBW

I have a Samsung 840 250GB SSD and I have Samsung Magician installed. I've let it run all the OS optimization stuff and it's currently set to 'Maximum Reliability'.

However, I've noticed that the TBW keeps going up regardless of whether or not I install anything. I've had it 2 months and it's at 1.17TB. Obviously I've installed windows, other than that though, I've only installed 2 or 3 games and Microsoft Office.

I was late to the party for the rise of SSDs, so I don't know whether or not this is normal. Can anyone help me out?

    But you have also run the machine, downloaded web pages, created and deleted documents. All activity written to the drive is counted in that. That counts every byte that is written, much of which is temp files and folders that get erased and they still count as they have been written. It sounds about right as far as a total compared to my bytes written, I'm at 4.6TB since late December.
  2. I realise there's a lot of writing that goes on behind the scenes, but having not had a counter for it and never having monitored it, I was surprised. None the less, it's good to have a little confirmation. Thanks!
