I think now they mostly want to see what happens after they hit MWI 0%.

How far is far?

I think 250TB is a good possibility for both of them.

I think they will get bored and stop before they die, after a year or so
I've had my G2 for about 6 months and have written 525 GB to it. At that rate my 9 year old Grandaughter will be using it after I'm gone.

600GB of writes already.
That includes original OS we did and 4? reimages.
I was well over 550GB when I got things squared away.
The cost of learning.

30-40GB since then in about 21 days.

I think 600GB is more than I put on my old HP in 5 years. Never had to reimage it. Original factory XP install is still on it.
Lucky I guess.

Most of the writes I have are reinstals. Many many of them. I like to play with things and usually mess them up.

Where are you guys getting the writes total from??

SMART "host writes"????

If so, I am sitting at 287 GB since purchased 2 months ago; that equates to about 1.8 TB per year.

Is the point of the discussion at attempt to determine how long these things will last under normal use? What does MWI stand for and what is the relevance of the percentage?

Media wearout indicator (MWI)

We are mostly talking about the test extreme systems is doing seeing how much writes you can do to an SSD before it fails. I am getting my writes from smart attributes in the Intel toolbox.

I used the Pro of this for a few days went to Free version.
A Guy I think posted it earlier.

Downloads on top right of page. Download free version or Pro is a trial for 30days??? or so.
SSD life - tool for solid state drives health and endurance monitoring

It uses the SSD info that is already available and just posts it up easy to read.


The testing is something interesting to Essenbe, myself and a couple of others on our forum so I post an update every few days.

Learning new things about SSD's and it is something to do.

OK; I see MWI in SMART attributes in the toolbox and I'm still at 100. I reckon it declines toward zero.

You have to wonder about the fear of too many writes considering it looks like decades of normal use to get MWI down to single digits. I relocated my Firefox cache to another drive and am wondering why I bothered.

Am I misunderstanding something about the "too many writes" hype????

That's what Hoppy and I were discussing. After watching that test, we wondered why there was so much discussion over moving the page file to another drive. I appears you can't kill one of these if you try. That's exactly what they are trying to do, and can't.

Yep!

Videos, large picture libraries and large audio libraries it makes sense to add them to a HDD.
Of course System Images etc to HDD.
Big games store on HDD and run them off the SSD.

Unless you are you using a 40-60GB boot only SSD why move everything off the SSD?

The only thing you don't want to do is run a LOT of read/write Benchmark software. Read only is okay.

I'm running everything on mine.
I set up for video storage and all that on the HDD when and if I download any.

My Snips and few pictures I have or only about 250MB so they are still on the SSD.

I turned off Hyberfil. I don't sleep or hibernate my PC. If I leave it I turn it off.

Superfetch is on. I go with WHS's thinking on that.

So except for the really big stuff use it as you would a HDD.

My two cents.
Mike
