My writes are at about 1.73TB now. I have no idea why. I just got the SSD too. Could it be the game Blacklight: Retribution I have on the SSD? BL:R says it runs the best on an SSD so I put it there. I can move it if that is causing the issues. I have also noticed that Windows 8.1 Pro is doing "maintenance" every day. Could it be trying to defrag my drive? It should be optimizing it instead.
