Re: How to partition HDD for Stanadalone Linux Mint?

Thanks a lot for all your feedback. I decided to go with:
* One Root partition (100GB) -- that includes /home directory.
* One Swap partition (6GB)
* One Data partition (rest of disk space) -- for data files only; user config files remain on /home in root partition.

I installed 17.1 MA...

Re: How to partition HDD for Stanadalone Linux Mint?

@Flemur, my windows world logic agrees with @nerdtron in regards to "/home" being disturbed during formatting and the possible program/user settings conflict/errors. But I am reminded by an advice I once read somewhere of the net that the sooner I agree that everything in the windows world is wrong,...
