I got my intel 320 120gb ssd last year in June or August, and i made sure i disabled everything that should harm an ssd in a long run but recently i noticed an alarming 8.61TB host writes on my ssd. I'm afraid this will permanently damage the ssd in a near future as i recall reading that 15TB is the limit for intel 320 series.
I'm sorry about the foreign language in the picture above. If you want me to translate anything please say.
My specs are:
Intel i5 750 oced at 3.8ghz
16gb of ram (upgraded recently from 4gb, and still the host writes increased 0,02 TB in just about 3 days)
Is this software reliable or should i ignore these numbers?
I may have forgot to turn anything else in my windows besides prefetch and superfetch etc. I hope you could help me.
Well, with all that done, i was able to notice what was causing it. I turned on a missing tab about write bytes on the task manager under "Processes", the biggest writes come from firefox. It can write a few gigabytes\day if i have a reasonable amount of tabs opened.
Now that i got 16gb of ram i hope the number of writes caused by the windows PageFile diminishes because previously i was able to fill my 4gb of ram pretty easly!
Now my last question is: how much TB of data can an intel 320 120GB withstand until it fails?
I did my search and i got mixed results, some claim that it is 15TB and others claim that it can go as higher as 600TB. Which one is more close to the truth i'll leave for you to awnser
