Best partitioning?

Thanks for all the advice. I think  I now know what to do. One small  question remains. Should I partition the ssd in any way? It seems a "waste" to have 120gb for Kubuntu without /home.Errol----- Original Message -----From: Cody Smith <cody.smith9202 at>Date: Thursday, May 1, 2014 22:41Subject: Re: Best partitioning?To: Kubuntu user technical support <kubuntu-users at>> O. Sinclair, to expand on what you said, /tmp tends to have quite a few writes, that might be worth adding to the 1TB, I only said what I did before to give pointers on what to put on the hdd if he wants to have the fewest read/writes possible. > On Thu, May 1, 2014 at 1:44 AM, O.

Depending on how much data you have the 1 TB should be your choice for /home even though it will be slower in reading/writing your files.  having it all on the SSD renders the 1 Tb kind of useless. I think if I were you I would put all but /home on the SSD, thus getting fast boot (hopefully) and fast software loading. And at the same time having a huge storage for files of whatever kind.   regards Sinclair  --  kubuntu-users mailing list > kubuntu-users at>  Modify settings or unsubscribe at:  > -- > kubuntu-users mailing list> kubuntu-users at> Modify settings or unsubscribe at: >‭‮
