Issue with writes to the SSD is really not something you can control. Even setting the Event Log to a different location really requires knowledge and expertise only a computer scientist would have; and most cannot do what you have done so far.
Seems to me the real issue is not the total writes to the drive, but the knowledge of the ultimate failure of that drive. The only practical way to prepare for disaster is to use an imaging program compatible with your operating system; some of them are free.
In other words, use your computer for what it is designed to do, but be prepared for the worst.
Use an imaging program to back up your system to recover from serious malware infections, lost data, and damaged os's, as well as for dead SSD's or hard drives.
Worry less, work more.
I just recently bought my first brand new SSD and I'm thrilled with it. But owning one of these has created somewhat of a bitter taste and a sense of unease. Now I'm obsessively thinking about ways to stop or limit some writes to the drive that I feel are unimportant. The reason I'm on this mission is because I looked at my specific manufacturers toolbox to see details about the drive and I noticed that it has already accumulated over 5 billion writes so far. This thing is a little over a week old. So then I'm looking at my event logs and I'm thinking that every single one of these entries is a small write here and there and EVERYWHERE and it just never stops!! Then I tried to move the logs to my D:\ drive by modifying the settings within Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) and the major ones did move there, but then there are over a hundred different other log categories under windows and there were no group policy settings for those. I was inspired to start this thread by another thread regarding clearing all those log files with a simple bat file. That conversation is here http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19411_102-378338/delete-all-event-logs-at-once-in-windows-7/ They came up with a .bat file that does clean them all out with one swoop. I am not good with those things and I was hoping that modifying something small would enable those certain files ending in .evtx to be moved to a new location and registered within Windows. Otherwise it's a huge amount of time going through each one to change the location from within the Event Viewer. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks
