Extending SSD life via overprovisioning?

Good day. I’ve heard there’s a way to extend an SSD’s life by decreasing its size, anyone got the info about it?

can’t find the info, would appreciate very much if someone helped me

If you cant find it anywhere, ie here or somewhere on the internet its probably not possible.

The only way I would assume is by recovering a “dead” SSD then partitioning so the corrupt part does not read.

But I guessed that so probably not possible.

Sounds like overprovisioning to me.
Some drives allow to adjust the amount, but ive never tried it.
Might be useful for plotting, but I dont know for sure.

Indeed you are referring to over-provisioning and its relation to write amplification
