Re: What is the advantage of separate /home partition
^^^ Ditto. Even though on this laptop I have a separate "home", by doing regular backups using lucky or grsync it makes it rather redundant as a complete backed up "home" is on another partition or drive anyway.

I just brought any backed up data over, from another drive, and had no issues at all. Turned out to be much faster and easier. So from now on, I won't use a separate "home" as I don't really need it.
