Windows 7: many time installing windows bad or no ?

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

I don't know Wolfgang, they said this during getting a SSD replaced under warranty. The R/W had dropped to less than 20% of when it was new.

They also said it helps to let the SSD be just on power, no SATA cable, to do its clean up, a.k.a. garbage collection, I think. This likely only applies to the M4 series though and not other SSDs.

If anything, I would do a secure erase. Of course after I took an image.
