x400 accumulating 1TB of writes per hour?

I could not find a forum for my drive.. So I guess I'll just put this here.

 

I recently purchased a Sandisk x400, after installing my SSD into my PC(custom built, windows 10) I installed HDDSentinel to keep and eye on my writes.

 

To my suprise I had already written over 5tb to the drive just by installing windows, I double checked this number with CrystalDiskInfo and sure enough, I watched my writes go up by 1tb per hour.

 

I downloaded the Sandisk dashboard app (pictured) and it seems the number HDDSentinel and Crystaldiskinfo is going off of 241:Total LBAs written.

 

Is this information true? Is Total LBAs written showing in GB on the sandisk utitility?

Please also see that NAND writes are only at 115GB

 

I have googled non-stop for 2 days and sandisk never explains this number. There are a few people that tell you to multiply that number by the sector size but that would mean I only wrote 4mb to my drive. So this number is not normal.
