I've got a new 120GB 320series Intel SSD. The Package was sealed.
There are about 40GB more "Host writes" (smart, SSD-Toolbox) on the Drive then I did. (Disk Space in use after first installation ~40GB, s.m.a.r.t. value "Host writes" ~80GB)
How ist this possible?
P.S. The "Power On hours count" value is 2. But the Drive ist just more than 5 hours in use for Software installation.
Best regards from Italy
I would not worry about it too much. Others have reported brand new SSDs with a GB of writes.... I suspect is just Intel validation tests.
