Generalwin10, allow file contents to be indexed Pin

Just stumbled upon this feature that you can see when you :
1. Open file manager
2. right click your local drive (or any drive really)
3. choose properties
Notice the last checkbox item:
[ ] Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties
(Normally it will be selected by default)
It looks like :

I turned it off today.
I don't use Microsoft file search. I would use the dir command or something.
Also if I want to find data inside a file I would us console findstr or something.

Turn Off If You Have An SSD?
I see many posts about turning this off if you have an SSD.
Does anyone have additional info on this? Any experience with it? With SSDs?
Why would people say it should be turned off for SSD -- because of too many writes to SSD and limiting it's lifespan?
Just curious about this setting as a general discussion.
