    After opening an empty folder, I have noticed 4 writes-to-disk. How could one
    reduce or eliminate the writes.

    Use SysInternals FileMon to see what is accessing the folder when you
    open it.

    Look for "last access update" on this page.

    http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/f...ur-OCZ-SSD-Product******Please-read-carefully!

    At least one of the writes, could be to update the "last accessed" date stamp.
    The OCZ article says "I leave this optional since security software may require
    this information." Changing the status of this option, may have side effects.
    Some users disable it on their new SSD, to reduce writes to flash.

    fsutil behavior query disablelastaccess

    This would turn it off, saving one write.

    fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1
