WA = 13 * 256GB / 70GB = 47.5, which is terrible, if correct.
My first one, also a 256GB Pro, Raw WLC of 2, and 0.30TB written;
WA = 2 * 256GB / 300GB = 1.7, which is more reasonable.
My newer 840 Pro has not been written to once completely yet, apparently. So in a sense, as I was reading, any SSD in that state is in a pseudo-SLC condition (leaving out other details), so the raw WLC value is wrong, and can't be accurate until one drive write has occurred.
Regardless, I'm not worried about my SSDs, it is BradleyW and FallenAzazel that seem to have weird total bytes written values, given their usage.FallenAzazel
, 60GB in 7 hours is 8.571GB and hour, and almost 143MB a minute, or over 2.38MB a second!
Assuming the writes are actually happening, that should be easily noticed in Performance monitor... assuming it happens at a steady rate. It could happen in bursts rather quickly, given how fast these drives are, and assuming a large sequential write.
You could try starting the PC in Windows Safe mode and see if the writes still happen. Also, stop that "comodo firewall", and see what happens.
BradleyW, you also seem to have an accelerated write usage for some reason, how much free space is on your 128GB 840 Pro?
Both BradleyW and FallenAzazel have Intel based systems, so this is not an incompatibility issue with the Magician software that can happen with AMD SATA chipsets and drivers. This sure is an interesting issue... easy for me to say since I don't have this problem.
