Re: Samsung SSD Install Now What?
The argument was you did not need a journal on a smaller partition and it reduces writes if you do not have one. Why boot partitions are usually ext2 historically even with rotating drives.
With a journal, fsck is quicker and repair or recovery is more likely. Why we use ext4 for larger partitions.
So with SSD and just a partition with system files journal does not add much and not having it reduces writes. But now they say the newer SSDs have lives not all that different than rotating drives so it does not matter.
I have an OEM/house brand (low cost) SSD, and have it configured with boot files and only user settings from /home. All my data is on a rotating drive. So I do not think journal adds much and if not having it increases life a bit, I will run without journal.
Or I do not really know.
