Size down SSD, worth it? - yanakis - 03-18-2015

Hi there.

I just installed Openelec on a Kingston SSD 60GB. I dont use it for storage because I have all media files on a NAS device. After I went through "discard vs fstrim" debate, I decided to go for fstrim & crontab but it seems that everytiime I run fstrim it takes about 10-15 seconds to run. I wonder if I size down the /storage partition would have any benefit , let say to 8 gigs. Theoretically fstrim would take considerably less that 57GB (aprox).

I would like to you your opinions on this.
