  1. What you should consider, is a Secure Erase on all of the SSDs. This is the best freshening for SSDs. It can be done using Parted Magic (bootable USB drive). Check an older version when it was free. Current version isn't free anymore. But the old one does the job.
  2. Or another SSD as Adobe scatch drive, to sent the load to multiple drives.

    Help with SSD I/O error

    If the used SSD ist mSATA now also other vendors like Samsung offer this. You could change your complete system to SSD.
  4. MS Encrypted Drive only works with fresh drive and only Windows 8.1.
  5. 10 GB write per day is normal, two weeks should be 140 GB. Initial install should be 150 GB. So 0,3 TB would be really normal, I would suggest to check again in 2 weeks.
  6. If you get a USB 3 Controller, these products could be Interesting for you:

    Migration nightmare!

    Did you try cloning "automatic" or "manual"? I always use manual and it works pretty well, but I usually clone with the recovery thumb drive. Maybe you can create a bootable thumb drive.

    SSD Noob, I need HELP!

    When you swap your board you need to reactivate your Windows 7, I did this in January. My used copy was a System Builder edition you can buy in Germany without a PC. I just did a phone activation and everything worked fine.

    Expertise needed please!

    I don't like the Sandforce controller, and would go with the Samsung 840. If your load is high and you use your Notebook all day long I would think about the Samsung 840 Pro, which is even more reliable.

    Intel 530 vs Samsung 840 pro

    Intel and Samsung build both great SSDs, I personally don't like Sandforce, so I would go with the 840 Pro.
  11. SSDs also use AF, which needs the correct alignment to reduce read and write activities. I don't know how Sandforce based drives operate, but the others use 4k or multiples of it. Alignment is still important.
  12. You can try to create a boot able thumb drive on a working machine with installed Samsung Magician for Secure Erase. If the drive itself is fine you should be able to reset the drive with this secure erase to "factory setting". Just boot the machine from the thumb drive.
  13. For best performance you should put pagefile on the SSD. 840 Pro is a great drive which can handle many operations including pagefile and hibernation. Usually only aligning and turning off defrag are mandatory. Without indexing you can search outlook mails fast for example.
  14. In which country are you located? Social Media page can be helpful.
