SSD with AOS4.1

Postby javierdlr » Wed Feb 06, 2013 11:54 pm

Do I have to take some "special" care to use a SSD on my SAM460ex with AOS4(+Linux)?
Or doesn't matter the 4K blocks on SSD or am I confusing things I've heard about SSD (much faster, but less life,..)?

The one I have here to test is: Kingston SSDnow 200 V+

TIA

AFAIK there is no special support for SSD in AmigaOS, so you have to take care about everything yourself. Partitions should be aligned to 512kb, file system block size should be 4kb.

Furthermore there is no way to TRIM. So if your SSD slows down for write accesses, you have to create a backup, erase the SSD in a PC which supports TRIM, put it back into the Amiga, install it again and restore the backup.

Finnaly I changed my old 80GB SATA disk with a Kingston V+200 120GB SSD, so lets see how AOS works with such drive (think it has some kind of TRIM/garbage_cleaner built-in support).
And in case it starts to work weird such SSD still can go back to the old 80GB SATA :-)
