Premise: I think (hoping to be right) that a SSD with 1% of free space will have a short life because the write operations will concentrate on the same few cells).
Now, consider the two following scenarios:
- a SSD disk with two partitions of the same size, the first one with
39% of free space and the second one with 1% of free space;
- the same SSD disk with a single partition with 20% ((1%+39%)/2) of free space.
I have two questions:
- Is the latter one better, or they are equivalent? (if the SO matters, I'm manly interested in Windows platform)
- Does the answer to the previous question remain the same even if one of the two partitions is crypted (for example with TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt)?
