After using my WD Black NVMe SSD for 13 days I have 1 TB of writes on the SSD and an average of 100 GB per day! Is this normal?
and how many writes on your SSD per day??
Please post your Lifetime writes and time you used the SSD? if possible?
I think 100 GB is too much per day!

that's way too much. You should try to reduce SSD writing by using tweaks and tools such as Tweak-SSD (totalidea)
try to find the culprit of high writing using Process Explorer -> create a new column of "I/O write bytes" -> sort
for example
Capture.PNG

you can also create a RAMdisk from 256-512MB to store your browser's cache folders (cache, media cache, code cache, GPUcache) -> clean the folder everytime you exit the browser

disable search indexing service = windows search, hibernation

Seems like Microsoft photos used 109 GB write bytes? what to do? and why was that?

I don't know. perhaps it indexes all photos in your PC or a bug in this app causing the issue. I did a quick search on google but still don't know why
solution 1: disable background process of microsoft photos
solution 2 (much preferred): remove/uninstall microsoft photos forever and use Windows Photo viewer (the one in windows 7)
here is how to enable Windows photo viewer
- download this - extract and run the registry file (.reg)
- right-click on any photo -> properties -> open with -> change to "windows photo viewer"

100 GB a day?? How do you measure the writes Is my first question. Maybe the software that does so is faulty and reports wrong numbers. Or are you streaming/recording content?
by hard disk sentinel

no I only browse internet not recording anything

Photos App just indexed all the photos and then cleared the cache, that's why Process Explorer recorded so many gigabytes of data. It happened initially when the Photos app detected folders with images and then read all of them. It's a natural thing at the beginning of SSD use. But, this should be monitored further (in about a month) to see if read/write still grows

still, the definite solution is to get rid of Microsoft photos because it will cause the same problem again the the next days perhaps after you clear caches
look at my post for the solution

windows photo viewer is x2-3 faster than Microsoft photos

Why process explorer shows very low amount of writes by the processes but Hard disk sentinel and Crystal disk info shows i wrote 80 GB on last 14 hours?

Process explorer only records the values from a process after you open it. When you close it and re-open, it will start a new record

hard disk sentinel and crystal record the total write value of everything

they are different. Process explorer helps you to point out who is the culprit while crystal and sentinel only help you to know that you have high writing value without telling you who

Uninstalling Microsoft Photos is a good but not perfect solution, because Windows 10 can install it again. The alternative solution is opening Microsoft Photos > Settings > Sources, and remove all folders which are there. This should be repeated on each account.

thats likely not normal, here is one of my SSD according to HD Sentinel

Transfer Rate Information
Total Data Read,"90 MB, 75.436 MB since installation (12/06/2018)"
Total Data Write,"78 MB, 70.596 MB since installation"
Average Reads Per Day,"168,01 MB"
Average Writes Per Day,"157,23 MB"
Current Transfer Rate,10 KB/s
Average Transfer Rate,180 KB/s
Maximum Transfer Rate,8.760 KB/s
Current Read Rate,0 KB/s
Current Write Rate,10 KB/s
Current Disk Activity,0 %
Average Disk Activity,"0,44 %"
Estimated Max. Transfer Rate,Larger disk utilization needed for the measurement.


Try using some softwares like SSD Fresh and Condusive Diskeeper
