Magician Readings for 970 Evo Plus NVMe M.2 drive?

Hi,

I have had a destop PC built for me which includes a Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe M.2 drive.

PC Spec's.

CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3400G

Board Asus Prime B450M-A

RAM Gammix D10 16GB  3200MHz DDR4

SSD  As above

HDD 2nd drive Seagate 1TB

O/S  W10 Pro

 

I installed the Magician Software. However the 'written' figures under the 'Drive Health' are not within keeping to what I was expecting.

 

The 'written' figure is now showing 433GB and I have only had the computer one week. The first time I ran Magician it showed 32GB written. It seems to jump up huge amounts when I do things like add drivers or a Windows Update etc.

 

Any idea's, or help on this would be very much appreciated.

 

Please see the add screen shots below:-

Thanks for reading,

 

Chris.

What a difference a day makes, in this case another 112GB and I've hardly done anything on the PC.

That's Windows 10 for you.  My 1TB 970 OS drive has 170 GB on it and has written 7.5TB so far.

I tend to buy the larger drives to take advantage of the increased caches sizes and sustained write speeds.

Many thanks for your reply. I feel a little happier knowing I'm not on my own.

 

It could be a Windows 10 issue I agree, but it could also in my view as likely be the Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe M.2 drive software. I run a Samsung V-NAND SSD 850 Evo drive on my old PC (I have been for 4 years) and there is no problem with the "Written" information in Magician, and both PC's are on the W10, 20H2 version, OS Build 19042.662.

 

What software have you used to get a true reading of what's been written?

I tried using HWiNFO64 portable, but that gave me the same reading as Magician (see below)

Now over 600GB "written" according to Magician!

The new PC isn't even 4 weeks old yet.

 

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
