Using Windows 10 and Ubuntu in dual boot system with Samsung 850 Evo SSD

This document(point 7 under Over Provisioning) states that Over Provisioning can only be performed on the last accessible partition

My question is:

Does the position of empty space matters in case of over provisioning for SSD in dual boot system? Furthermore, as Samsung Magician software is not available for Ubuntu, will the raw space work the same as over provision done by the software?

  • I wouldn't worry about it at all. It seems that technique makes no sense for the current generation of SSDs. – GabrielaGarcia Oct 12 at 19:45
