comment When is the data in the journal written to the disk?
I think There's no evidence that disk life is correlated with activity level. is incorrect. See storagereview.com/guide/specCycles.html for more info; specifically Each time the drive starts and stops a small amount of wear occurs to the heads and also to other components such as the spindle motor. For this reason, hard drives are given a specification for the minimum number of start/stop cycles they are designed to handle during their service life..
