I've got an older SSD drive in a secondary computer (operating system is Void Linux, ext 4 file system, no swap) that doesn't see a whole lot of use. I want to take reasonable steps to extend the life of that drive, a drive which, unfortunately does not support trim. What I'd like to do is find out which mount options I might enter into /etc/fstab in order to better preserve the drive, such as options aimed at reducing read/write cycles. So far what I have in /etc/fstab is something like
/dev/sda1 / ext4 relatime,defaults 0 1 Are there any others I should consider adding?
Also, any other tips aimed at extending the life of this drive by introducing some sort of wear leveling or other strategies will be appreciated. My research so far has already indicated that I should try to avoid filling the drive to more than half its capacity. It's a small drive, but as things stand it is at just under half capacity, so I think I'll be able to keep it pretty close to that. Additional pointers will be appreciated. Like, maybe switching to the f2fs file system?
