- works a treat and frees up SSD space, too..

How do you do this?

Doing those type tweaks are not necessary.

In fact turning off the Defragger is the only necessary thing that needs to be done on an SSD after install.

I agree with hopalong, many people tweek their SSDs to death. Most of that stuff is not necessary and some of the 'tweeks' are detrimental to SSDs.

Last update from One Hertz was 12 July.

Hope they all continue at least 2-3 times the rated media wearout indicator.

Mike, is the Kingston writing that much slower than the 320? It is 54TB behind and they started at the same time.

Kingston #'s are yesterday mornings numbers.

Anvil shut down since then. Was out of town so stated he will update in the morning our time.

Numbers are lower on Kingston but it has been turned off for the past 36 hours so that makes them even lower.

Maybe an extra 20TB? Maybe more.

The Intel 320 has been writing at about 40MB's.

The Kingston avg. 32-34MB's according to the bench application. After a good cleaning it went up to 38MB's but dropped off again later that day.

There I got the abbrevations right.

The Kingston probably is low 20TB or so since it was not running for 36 hours.
