View Full Version : [ubuntu] Home folder on separate partition ?

May 8th, 2010, 07:25 PM
Hello !
Many Ubuntu users seem have their /home folder on a separate partition (better security?). I have a OK dual-boot installation (Win7+Ubuntu 10.04) - should I try to move my /home folder ? If so, how ?
I DO NOT want to get into any troubles with my existing setup !
I have free (unallocated) disk space both outside and inside the extended partition which is used for Ubuntu (90 GB, Ubuntu is 60 GB ext4 + 7 GB swap).
