Installing Windows on part of SSD RRS feed

  • Question


  •   Is it true that even when I install Windows on a one of four partitions of a new SSD, the wear-leveling algorithm found originally on the SSD, will spread the usage and data across the entire SSD and won't limit it just to the installation partition ??

    Let me clarify.

    To answer your question above.

    No is is not true.

    I go on to explain, wear leveling evenly distributes writing on all blocks of a SSD so they wear evenly. Partitions remain the same.

     Hi, 

     Thanks for your care.  That answer is a bit confusing.  It starts with "No" and then contradicts itself.
