I just checked the write rate to my SSD for a "1.17 VirtualMachine for VASP" work unit. It is averaging about 350 GB/day when running on my i7-4771 (Win7 64-bit, VirtualBox 5.1.38). No wonder you limit us to a single work unit at a time.

That is no problem for me, I just set up a ramdisk (Primo Ramdisk Pro) and put the BOINC data folder on it. So the writes will never get to the SSD. But I think you should disclose that fact.
