I have been reading about people setting up a cron job to do
fstrim on their SSDs on a daily/weekly basis.
So, here are my questions:
cronif my laptop doesn’t have 100% uptime? As in, does it manage to run, for example, a weekly job if my computer is shut down at the start of its week and I then turn it on?
fstrim? Duckduckgoing about it has left me a bit confused. Void Linux (the ditro I use) doesn’t do it by default I am sure.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
