How much free space sould be left on a SSD?

[ Edited ]

How much space should remain free on a SSD?

 

Is 10% enough - for example with 64GB SSD about 6 GB - 7GB remain free?

(or about 10 - 15 GB for 128 GB SSD)

Since FW 0006 of the C300 (which pre-dates all versions fo the M4), you can fill it.

So there is no performance benefit if I left for example 5 GB of space empty

or any perforance penalty if I fill the SSD to the fullest?

I tested it with just enough room to benchmark (can't now remember how much that was!) and it was at top speed. Windows will moan at you if you let its system drive get that low though.

Older drives did indeed need free space (again from personal experience).  But these don't.
