Location of EFI system partition

Postby AGH1965 » Tue Dec 24, 2019 2:13 am

Is it wise to locate a BIU managed EFI system partition on a SSD? SSD sectors can't be written as often as HDD sectors. When BIU manages the EFI system partition, then the same sectors in this partition are modified over and over again. Will this shorten the life of the SSD? Is it therefore wiser to locate a BIU managed EFI system partition on a HDD?

You don't need to worry about your SSD.
