I cant decide the answer to this situation

A Disc SSD or mechanical is divided into partitions
The operating system is installed on the first partition
the rest of that disc is mostly data - games - etc
There for the 1st partition is accessed read and write very often
while the rest of the disc infrequently

To maximize life span does it make sense to occasionally move
that OS partition to another part of that disc - perhaps the end -
to spread-even out the wear ?
