    I don't know where exactly I should post this as it is a little bit of everything: encryption, hardware and sandbox.

    I have a 120 GB SSD with a 24 GB partition of Windows 7 (which sits on half of the partition) and a 80 GB TrueCrypt partition (which is mostly empty still, but TrueCrypt filled it with random data of course). On the Windows 7 partition I use Toolwiz TimeFreeze which creates a 4 GB sandbox file. I don't use hibernation but there is a 2 GB page file automatically created for the 2 GB of RAM (old machine, light office, web use).

    The question is how fast this setup will eat up my SSD's life? Is there a good software to monitor it? SMART reading from CrystalDiskInfo and Kingston Toolbox (it's a Kingston drive) say it was written 270 GB on it and read 140 GB. I have the drive for about 5 days. OK, there was install at the beginning and TruCrypt wrote all those random data on the drive but isn't it too much or all just normal?
