NEW SSD comes with 300 GB written!

I just got my new Samsung SSD 980 Pro 2TB. All I did is, installed Windows 10 operating system & Samsung magician software.

 

When I checked Drive Health from Drive details, to my surprise it already shows 383GB written! No, its not true all I did is just 69GB write on the disk.

 

Samsung has limited warranty with the clause, 5 years or 1200TBW, should they exclude this difference from warranty? Should I worry about this?

Did you install any hardware drivers or Windows Updates? Also Microsoft Store wil download and update apps in the background, all of which requires extraction of archives and temporary files (as does installing Windows itself). So the amount Samsung Magician is telling you for total bytes written is to be expected. How much is stored now is not an indicator of how much the drive has been used by your system. 383GB is plausible

it is pretty plausible that you wrote that data during the installation and setup process
