I have just upgraded my HP Envy laptop from a HDD to the SSD, in particular the Samsung 870 QVO 1TB drive..
Reading on the web I notice that SSD's have a lifespan and this drive is warranted from Samsung for 3 years or 360TBW..
Using there software it shows that since I installed it on Friday 4th December it has written 562GB which for just over a week seems a lot..
I presume this included the initial "clone" of the HDD I did which is 204GB plus through an issue I caused I did a restore from an image so that would be included..
Should I be concerned how mush data is written to the drive? and have any of you had a short lifespan of the SSD?
I did run Crystal Disc Info which puts the drive at good and 99% but as there is no decimal point that could be between 99-100%... maybe it is a false reading due to the initial data write in a short time with the clone of the old HDD
I must say it has made a great difference to this laptop, it boots in 20 seconds now rather than up to a couple of minutes and seems so much smoother
Any advice to a new to SSD user
