SSD writes


I read a bit of the forum and just want to make sure I’m doing everything right…
So the question is really kinda simple I want to know if there’s anything I need to do in order to keep my SSD as healthy as it can. Because I have a bad feeling that there’s excessive use of it(I can hear it way too often compare to other OS).



We did the math once or twice in a topic, but basically you could have a tough use of Qubes OS every day for a dozen years before your SSD cells wear off.

The SSD controller is likely to die earlier than the cells, so don’t worry about using it. You can’t prevent the controller failure.
