I use ShadowDefender with disk writes redirected to RAM. Shadowdefender shows total disk writes. The daily (12 hours) total disk writes are about 2.5 GB including all Windows updates.
I do not use applications which index media on my disks and backup applications.

It is not free and in your case, it will be useless.
Did you do what was suggested before, to uninstall Microsoft Photos or to remove folders with photos from Microsoft Photos (no indexing)?

Download Western Digital SSD Dashboard to see, how much data was written overall. HD Sentinel logs only, when it is running in the background.
CrystalDiskInfo shows me I have got 1704 GB within a month.

The data transfer wouldn't worry me as much as the fast degradation of disk health. Here is my notebook's SSD just for comparison. ;it has been on two different computers and have seen several system wipes/restores. It's still at 100%.

On Crystal Disk Info it shows 100% for me but on hard disk sentinel and western digital SSD Dashboard shows its 97%
You have to see it from Hard disk sentinel or Samsung magician?

If you are curious and would like another opinion altogether, you can try HWINFO if you like.

HWINFO

I also have a Western Digital Black nvm-e, it's almost brand new, got it 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. If you haven't run it before, please tick the Sensors box to run that and then scroll way down until you hit the disk info. Here's mine, and yes, I'm also concerned about premature wear of the drive, although this is pretty minimal usage at the moment.

I don't use HD Sentinel anymore, it is a bit a fearmongering soft, told my HDD will die soon, and must change it asap but it still worked years later lol.
I too think that. My 2011's PC's HDD still works even after all these years.
