I disagree with this statement - kinda. It will write a WU to your drive when beginning, and delete the WU when it's finished, before writing another one to start again. SSD performance is eventually degraded through excessive write operations. Now, while FAH may not produce any noticeable degradation, I still think it's better to be 'safe than sorry' and install FAH to your HDD. Or, at least, you can install the client itself to the SSD, as long as you install the data directory somewhere on your HDD.
