Overprovisioning question


Recommended Posts

I've never over-provisioned a SSD before, and am curious if it will resize the available space that is reported to the OS? (or, in other words: Do I need to resize my C: partition beforehand or be at risk of an unbootable system?)


For reference, I have 80+ gigs free, and am not planning on over-provisioning anywhere near that much.


Are there any other gotcha's when over-provisioning the system drive from a running system?

Good to know. Thanks.


As a general question: Does over-provisioning shrink the amount of reported disk space to the operating system?


Does the over-provisioned space (generally) come from the start or end of the SSD's table?


Just looking to learn new stuff. Thanks
