Ubuntu on a Crucial SSD, fantastic! But will never use 120 Gigs or even half that. After years of SSD writes (and subsequent SSD corruption), does an utility exist to copy the entire operating system and all files over to the unused portion of the SSD?
My understanding is the SSD degrades in activity areas, where it is being used and written to. But at least half of the SSD never used, and will never be used, and so remains in new pristine condition.
Can the lifetime of the SSD be doubled by copying the first 60 Gigs (where Ubuntu and everything resides) over to the last never-used 60 Gigs? Then those first 60 Gigs would be erased, and set aside as a new partition. And Ubuntu now runs on the equivalent of a new SSD, those last 60 Gigs. The utility would then need to prevent any future usage or writes to that first 60 Gig partition of the SSD where Ubuntu had formerly resided.
