i've heard it said- why partition with ssds
i'm wondering why they would say that. Is the situation different from with spinning disk style hard drives.
The reasons with spinning disk drives, were
-smaller partitions are quicker to defragment
-could be quicker to format (though there is quickformat!)
-organization separating data and system onto separate partitions, and can wipe the system partition.
I know somebody may look at those reasons and still not partition a drive. But I am interested in what the reasons are, with partitioning an SSD drive, how the situation differs if at all?
Somebody suggested why not buy a few small SSDs. Though surely the same logic would apply to partitioning non-SSD drives? And surely with either, one is limited by the number of SATA ports.
And is the issue of partition alignment something that is relevant to both SSD and non-SSD? i've only heard of it recently, in SSD times.
