comment How much does having Indexing running on my Samsung SSD affect health vs. search speed?
@Ramhound , so, if I could store the index on a regular HDD then that would not shorten the lifespan, right? (not sure if that's possible.

@Ramhound, I see. So, it's the constant writing to update the index that is causing the shortened life span.

comment Replace corrupt system file from windows 7 recovery console
Yep, did that. It at least ran and finished, but SFC was not able to replace some files. Not sure where to get them and they are all in AMD directories and I am on an Intel processor so hoping I don't need those :)

When I run the WRE it shows my Windows directory is on E: (although it was on C: when booting up normally)> is this typical? And should I use c: or e: in your example?
