Windows Update is dangerous for SSD?
Nov 12, 2013, 6:22 AM
I own a corsair 120gb Force LS SSD as an OS drive. I am concerned that windows update keeps on installing/updating thus more writes and less SSD space.
Should I disable Windows update or am I just being paranoid? Does windows update take too much space?

You are being a tad bit paranoid. The use of Windows Update will have no appreciable impact on your SSD.
No worries. Have fun!
