Constant writes to system drive

Recommended Posts

Even when idle, there are hundreds of writes to my SSD system drive. Why?

Does not explain it.

It is an SSD so multiple writes will degrade it.

You will discard your SSD long before it reaches its lifetime limit of writes. I do about 3-4TB a year to my system drive. Given a lifetime of around 1000 TB of writes, I don't expect it to die anytime soon.

Cheers!

I've noticed constant disk activity also.  I assume it is Content Indexing (CI) but I'm not sure if that's still a thing with Win10 or not.  Haven't bothered to check if that's a service or not.
