Don't worry about ssd, writes, you won't kill your drive.

 

You can use backups, but restore points are a snapshots that has to be on the same drive.

Is it okay to turn off system restore point on my boot drive (SSD) and enable it on other storage drive (HDD)?

 

I am asking this because I am not installing any heavy files that would write 1.7TB of data within 3 months in the SSD. I believe it is due to system restore cause after installing the latest nvidia driver, my SSD space went from 134GB to 124GB. After deleting system restore point, I got space around 132GB. And I cleared the system restore point last week.

 

There are no heavy background tasks that I know of that could be causing this. And I haven't even installed a single game on the SSD. The SSD is 860 EVO 256GB.
