I am reading that SSD need to have some "garbage collection".
For an SSD which would be the main device of a Linux desktop (the precise model I bought is Samsung SSD 970 EVO M2 - 2Tbytes), does it make sense to leave a small part of it unused?
I'm thinking of e.g. partitioning that SSD such that 2% of it remains in an empty Linux partitioning.
My dream is that by leaving some unused space, I might improve the life time of that SSD (because the firmware inside it would "rotate" that unused space). Does that make sense?
But I am not a hardware guy at all, so I could be very wrong.
This could be a related question (on "unix&linux").
