SSD Host Writes per day exploded

I've a 256G SSD; in the first 13 months, CrystalDiskInfo reported total host writes of 1.4TByte or 3.5GByte/day. In the last 10 days, it accumulated 2.3TByte or 230 GByte/day.

I'm not aware that my use pattern changed by any means. I've the Windows page and hibernation files on the drive, but otherwise I re-routed most writes to my conventional hard drive. I've accumulated (according to CrystalDiskInfo) 50GByte over dinner time, but Windows Task Manager reports total I/O writes at maybe 3GByte (eyeballing the total of the column)

I'm puzzled - any ideas?

  1. Turn off hibernation
    Check Task Manager and see if there are any weird processes running.
    How much free space is there?
    Reboot and start CrystalDiskInfo again. Might be a glitch with that.
    Virus and malware scan
  2. Interestingly, Samsung's SSD Magician reports a SMART value for Total LBAs Written as 3'128'633'529, whereas CrystalDiskInfo reports 7'423'669'920

    Will check with a few more tools ..

    Thanks, USAFRet; but Hibernation is not at play, as over dinner time, it didn't hibernate ... free space is around 30%; I rebooted many times over the last 10 days, so that can't be it either ...
