I have a 512 SSD which is partitioned into essentially two 256 areas. One for Windows, the other for Linux (Ubuntu). Neither is encrypted. I want to clean my system up, but am only concerned about the linux partition. I understand you can not securely delete files from ssd due to the firmware deciding where to put data.
My question is if the linux partition is wiped/formatted then encrypted with a reinstall, will that sufffice or will the old data be spread across partitions (wear-leveling)?
This may seem like a silly question, but my knowledge of this sort of thing is limited.
