View Full Version : [ubuntu] Home and root on different HDDs?

Good idea? Should this result in a net gain in speed since I have two drives working at once, or is this going to slow things down due to communication between the two taking longer?

One is a newer TB hard drive from Samsung. The other is a laptop hard drive for a special mounting included in my case, 2.5 Scorpio Blue by Western Digital....bought last year, barely used.

Jeez. The installation is sure going faster. If that is a sign of how the OS will operate I am in for good times.

Early speed was party an illusion. Still, 12 minutes with 12 tabs open including yahoo and Youtube isnt bad. Next is doing some benchmarks when I reboot.

Edit: Nevermind, it didnt even boot properly. I could probably hack it but Im not going to bother. I guess that answers my question.
