I was just doing some maintenance on my sisters computer yesterday evening, and noticed that the SSD is pretty worn out. Wear_Leveling_Count: 1%
Total Bytes Written: 21.35TB..... how on earth?! It's only a 128GB SSD!

@mhamzahkhan swap + low overall memory? Some of the early SSD weirdnesses (you might remember those "Chromenis killing your SSD" headlines)?

@sheogorath I don't think it's swap. I only put a 1GB swap partition on it, and it has 16GB RAM in the machine. My sister mainly uses her computer just for browsing. It's not an old SSD either. It's a Samsung SSD 840 Pro. *shrug* It's been in use for ~5 years, maybe it's normal.
