Windows 10: Can't enable Over Provisioning on Samsung SSD

    Can't enable Over Provisioning on Samsung SSD


    It seems that I can't enable Over Provisioning on my Samsung 500GB EVO.

    I got W10 x64 along with Ubuntu installed. I shrinked 50GB (10%of the SSD) from the partition and I still can't get this thing enabled.

    Over provisioning just makes unallocated space, so you're set any how.
    But I suspect it's because of Ubuntu using ext.3 or ext.4 file system and Magician is working inside of Windows with NTFS.

    It seems I have to resize Ubuntu to give space to it...

    It seems that it should be specifically at the end of the space

    On an SSD it doesn't matter physically.
    Actually the SSDs controller lies to the OS as to where data is stored, as there is no " spinning disk", only NAND chips organized in cells & blocks all with the exact seek time.
