Questions about OVER-PROVISIONING

I am trying to perform the procedure but CRUCIAL's program is not allowing me, when I create a new unit, for some reason windows creates another of 1.63Mb, and the program wants to realize the OP with only 1.63Mb. I looked around and realized there was another way to do OP. If I partition the SSD and do not allocate this space does the SSD automatically use that drive not allocated to the OP?

Yes. It would be great, if the drive had had data on it previously., to do a secure erase, then make a smaller initial Windows partition on the drive. This (secure erase) will make sure that the OP nand is clean and free of possible write amplification issues/is ready to be utilized re maintenance routines.
