hard drives can handle 100s of millions read/write operations in the same place. it's far more than useful life of your drive.
also writing in smaller or larger chunks of data WILL NOT PROTECT your drive.
think about it...if you write 32kb at a time or 50meg at a time, in the end same amount of disk surface will be affected so claim of reducing drive wear is totally wrong.
