I see this subject has been addressed somewhat here but I just wanted to share my experience. I noticed my disk writes were increasing at a huge rate and found the culprit to be Glasswire. The attached image is about 5 hours of computer use and Glasswire has written 6GB of writes to my drive (an SSD). I’m seeing 20GB+ per day of writes.
I don’t torrent or do anything unusual. Most of my usage is 10-15 Chrome tabs, Thunderbird, and Spotify. I also play Hearthstone for about 30 minutes every other day or so. Beyond watching occasional Youtube videos or downloading a driver or something there’s not much more there.
I’m probably going to uninstall Glasswire for now. These writes are just too much even on a physical drive for what I’m using it for. I understand logging is going to require a large volume of writes but I actually primarily use Glasswire to monitor my bandwidth because my connection has a cap on it, for me the firewall features are almost secondary although nice.
Hopefully there can be a less verbose option in the future that minimizes this disk activity.
