    Ssd partition alignment

    I understand a little about aligning partitions and have made sure my 2 partitions are properly aligned on my ssd.

    I have some unallocated space after the 2 partitions I want to now divide up between each. Will this end up misaligning any of the partitions?

    To verify if the partition was properly aligned, download and run a tool called AS SSD Benchmark. If it shows all GREEN then it's OK. If RED then it need to be aligned.

    thanks. i understand how to check if it's aligned. i was hoping to find out if moving an already aligned partition will mis-align it.
