Re: SSD questions

There is a wiki on the different filesystems.  Threads asking questions like that are quickly TGN'ed.  But is the following a separate question?

To do what?

Re: SSD questions

The Wiki article is a good place to start.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSD

I used btrfs for / and /home and have had no problems despite its official beta status. Don't forget to use the noatime (or relatime) and discard options in fstab.

Re: SSD questions

I like btrfs for load leveling but I do not like the status of the fsck util and file recovery options.  Stick to ext4 for now is my advice.  Also read the wiki page already referenced, then, re-read it tongue

I think you have to read more to understand the basics.

Re: SSD questions

I would stick with ext4 and partition the drive for security as outlined here. Btrfs has some interesting sounding features but from what I've heard the potential for crashes and other problems is higher than a plain ext4 file system. For my fstab I have at a minimum, defaults,discard set for the options for each partition.
