With the widely use of SSD on the computer, you may have use it instead of
traditional hard disk. However, you might be confused by the improper performance of
during the process of using SSD. That’s because partition is not aligned when SSD
partitioned. It is well known to us that SSD adopt the smallest 4K sector in file
system to save data. In fact, the smallest 4K allocation units are not always
aligned with the 4K pages in SSD, which can affect on the performance of SSD. Thus
how to solve this problem? You may say: to align SSD partition.
If 4K sector is not aligned, even for the small amount of data, it will occupy two 4K
sectors which cause to read and write across the sectors. Thus it also can decrease
the speed of read and write. And concerning to the limitation of SSD read and write
times and unaligned 4K sector, frequently read and write could lead not only
property reduction, but shorten the service time.
