Hi,
I'm using a Force GT 240GB.

Is it recommended to "create overprovisioning" with SSD Toolbox?
What overprovisionig is exactly and why it is important?
Can you elaborate in detail please?

Is 6GB enough for overprovisioning?

Suppose that I create an overprovision of 6GB, if I format the drive, does this "overprovision" remain or should I redo the process?

Thanks

It's not something you need to worry about, just use the drive as-is.

I read from corsair site that all the drives supported by the SSD toolbox comes with a partition that is not writable for overprovisioning, so thanks for confirming that there is nothing to warry about.
