I've seen all the news around the M1 Mac writing the SSD excessively and I also have very high write counts on my SSD already.
I do know SSDs do have a spare capacity they can assign to blocks once an original block is damaged. But this is only a few blocks as far as I know - is there any possibility to for example Mae the official capacity of the SSD smaller by 10GB and give those blocks as additional spares to the controller so it can prolong the live of the SSD a bit longer once blocks start dying?
Or how would you go about securing the SSD Life? Is it a possibility to shrink the partition and zero out the rest of the drive so the controller can use these blocks? Would this include a firmware update of the ssd controller? I'm a bit lost about where to start with this.
