SSD Differences
• SSDs are identified differently than HDDs • For SSDs:
– Set Defrag OFF – Support for “Trim” feature (occurs on delete)
• Makes early garbage collection possible for fast write • Enhances wear-leveling by eliminating merge operations for deleted data blocks • Maximizes device unused area – more room for wear-leveling
