Partitioning is bad for SSD's? Tags: SSD Boot NAS / RAID Storage Last response: May 27, 2012 11:05 PM in Storage Share tom2u May 25, 2012 7:30:07 PM I've been told that SSD's don't like to be partitioned. Would you people agree with that? I'd like to set up 2 30gb SSD's in Raid 0, then have a triple boot option (3 partitions I guess). Is there other things I should consider? More about : partitioning bad ssd Anonymous a b G Storage May 25, 2012 7:51:20 PM regardless about an SSD, it is illogical to set up 3 partitions that small. put the OS your most likely to use on the SSD and the other two on a platter. m 0 l fantastik250 a b G Storage May 25, 2012 10:10:55 PM That setup looks inefficient. I agree with looniam. Keep only one partition for your OS on the SSD. The rest of the data on your HDD. If you plan to have 2 SSD: One SSD containing the OS. The other SSD containing mostly used programs. HDD used as a storage. m 0 l Related resources Partitioning an SSD, is it really bad? - Forum SSD Migration Through Partitioning? - Forum Partitioning SSHD vs SSD for OS - Forum SSD + HDD partitioning? - Forum Partitioning new SSD - Forum Can't find your answer ?
