Swap space choice on a SSD <- Current best practice on?




Hello folks:

Again -- fussing with a full (not from a live .iso) 9.7 install; the Debian GUI installer is suggesting a Swap partition on a Kingston SSD.


#1 Given that it's not great to pound the same area of a SSD with writes; is it indeed still best practice to go with a swap partition on a SSD rather than a swap FILE?

(Or is this a legacy spinning hard disk install suggestion?)


#2 How DO you get the installer to go with a Swap FILE?

Just delete that recommended Swap partition during the install?


I looked; but did not run across any best practice docs for Swap on SSD.


Thank you
