No, only two partitions. / and /data. You ask about mp3's etc. Well what exactly do you mean? Existing mp3's? If so, you move those along with all your other data to the /data partition manually ( it only needs to be done once). If you are talking about a new mp3 such as ones you download, then that data will only go where you tell your browser to put it, so you set the default download directory to /home/username/data and that is where it will go.
Of course you do not have to take notice of anything I say, but if you feel of a mind to do so then I will tell you how I would go about it.
I would always pre partition. So in your case first copy any data that you want to keep somewhere else. Then open gparted and partition the disk into two partitions one 10g one 30g (I will assume that your OS will call these partitions /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 but if it decides on something different then alter the following commands accordingly). Install Mint into the 10g partition and make sure it boots. Open /etc/fstab as root and add the following line:
- Code: Select all
/dev/sda2 /home/username/data ext4 defaults 0 1
(if you aren't using the ext4 filesystem then you will need to change that accordingly and obviously you substitute your proper username).
Open your /home/username folder and create a new folder called 'data' (without the commas).
Now reboot again and make sure that the data folder is accessible in /home/username.
Finally copy all your data back into the data folder.
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).
