Huge amount of data written to the disk

Huge amount of data written to the disk   12 November 2016, 00:20

Uptime 3h. 4 GB/h? Am I missing something here? Brainfart? 13 000 000 000 bytes is 12 GiB.
I downloaded the program from here. As I didn't change default all this data has been written on the SSD. sad At least I've only been using this program for a couple days but that's still ~tons of GB. My SSD went from 182 to 228 GB total host writes in 14h. Majority being from NetWorx as I've changed the temp/cache settings for Emby and hardly used it for those 14h. CrashPlan doesn't write anything to the SSD.

Now I've uninstalled it and don't plan to reinstall so I can't supply more info. I guess this is mostly a warning than a support thread.

I've compared my NetWorx.exe checksum with that at: []
They match.
VirusTotal gives no virus matches.

I forgot to include the titles in the screenshot. Here's a later one but it's after NetWorx uninstall.

This is pretty common, and it has nothing to do with viruses and it doesn't write to your SSD.

It's just that any ETW-based monitor would report nonsense values for the reasons I explained in this thread.

Ah ok, sorry about another one then. smile
Maybe add some info about it at the program site/in the software or just make a sticky thread.
