Do SSD's really need to be scanned?

Whether there is a benefit I am not sure about but if you want to disable it, select the disk -> disk settings -> never scan automatically.

Yup, that's exactly how to disable it. 


As for if there is benefit, I'd say there is.  The surface scan is a sector by sector read.  For an SSD, this doesn't read the platters, but it does read from the NAND flash.  If that is having issues, it will show up, all the same.   Also, because they're SSDs, the scan should happen a lot faster, and IIRC, there is no real downside to scanning, as it's read only. It's writes that are an issue with SSDs.
