7% Over Provisioning
OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimize the health, performance, and endurance of your drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura N storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura N SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.
