/dev/sda2 /home/username/data ext4 defaults 0 1
Incidentally the default folders that are created in your /home/username folder (like downloads, pictures etc) are best deleted and recreated on the /home/username/data folder (or you could just move them there I suppose).
then when if I were to reinstall all of my data would be still sitting safely in my "data" folder, after the reinstall and first boot up?
what does linux do with anything that it needs to put in the home folder now?
I must say though that very many people seem to manage with a separate /home as opposed to /data, though I tried it once and it was a nightmare for me, obviously for altair and fred too. That is why I recommend this way, but "your mileage may vary" as they say
