    Are you sure that this is a problem?

    The Trash is for all drives connected, so if files are in the Trash they are not necessarily on the SSD. If you put a file thats on a memory stick in the Trash then it will remain on the memory stick in a hidden .Trashes folder until the Trash is emptied.

    Do you think thats normal that all you torrent files finish in trash can instead of destination folder you allready set up in utorrent?

    I don't know as I use Transmission not uTorrent.

    Also depends what you mean by torrent files, whether you mean the .torrent file or the file being downloaded.

    Its a different Bittorrent client.
    http://www.transmissionbt.com

    Though usually I just let all the downloads go to the downloads folder on my SSD (well more recently a Fusion drive SSD+HDD) as I have plenty of space, and even if it reduces the life I don't really care if it dies in 10 years instead of 40 (just some made up numbers, with modern SSD's I don't see it as being a problem).

    No most of the time I have had a single SSD, no hard drive.

    only recently I've switched to a fusion drive where data is being constantly moved between the two drives automatically.

    The SSD I use for this (Kingston SSDNow V+100) is around 2.5 years old, realistically I expect to retire it due to capacity before it breaks. Though I've been writing a lot more data to it (versus my newer drive) as more recently it's been taking something like 50GB+ per day writes from some imaging equipment.

    My other SSD (Crucial M10) is newer at just over 1.5 years but no problems on that one either. I've been hitting it pretty hard with writes as well, and as I'm using a Fusion setup it never has more than around 4GB free. I still don't expect it to fail anytime soon.

    All my torent files goes to trash???

    Im testing transmission now and i might say its very unstable about speed,speed vary all the time from 10kbs to 10mbs not happy with this program same files with qtorrent are keeping the same speed almost all the time,i might try bittorrent if its exist for mac
