Windows Central Question

I've just installed windows 10 into my new PC. I have two SSDs in it, one for files and one for booting windows. I've decided to enable the windows 10 file history feature to backup 200GB worth of files from my boot SSD into to my 2nd SSD. My question is, if I set it to the hourly backup option, will it slow down the computer whilst I'm using it? I'm usually on my PC 12 hours a day.
I've also read that the storage sectors on an SSD have a limited number of writes therefore its advised to minimize writing to the drive as much as possible. If I enable the hourly file history backup option, can it damage my SSDs since theoretically they would be backing up 200GB worth of file history 12 times in a day?
