I've read a few guides on partitioning but haven't found a scheme that fully fits my situation. I'm fairly new to linux and am looking for the most effecient setup for easily backing up.
I have two hard-drives:
- 120GB SSD
- 1TB HDD
My thinking for my partitioning scheme is:
- 120GB SSD
- 20 GB for /
- 8 GB for Swap
2. 1TB HDD
- 75GB for Home
- 925GB for Storage
My questions are:
- Is this an OK setup for easily backing up? I'm pretty picky about my configurations for programs and don't want to have to re-configure my applications?
- I feel like this is a rather large waste of a lot of space on the SSD but where Ubuntu is my own SSD I don't know what to do with the remaining space.
- During installation if I create a storage partition do I just make it EXT4 and set the mount point to /Storage?
Thanks for any suggestions,
SOLVED: Along with everyone's suggestions I took some time and read some of the Ubuntu "help" documentation. If you've got questions about how partitioning works or how to configure a hard disk or really any questions related to storage you should check out: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DrivesAndPartitions
