TN.Frank Posted March 24, 2014 Share Posted March 24, 2014 I'm finally moving from HDD's to SSD's in a couple of my laptops and wonder if there's any tips or tricks I should use to help get longer life out of em'? I'll be using a Debian Distro(Kali or maybe SolydX) and the SSD's will be 32GB Kingston units. I've read that I should set aside 10% as Unallocated so the SSD won't get filled up(no real chance of that, just be running the Distro on it, I do storage on an external HDD) because as they fill up they slow down. Also there's some stuff about doing a tweak to fstab to enable TRIM but shouldn't ext4 already have TRIM enabled?? If there's any SSD Gurus on the forum I'd love to pick your brains and see if there's anything "special" that I need to do after I install the SSD other then install the Distro on it. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
