with ~30Gb - then maybe:

10Gb = / root
20Gb = /home
1 -2 Gb = /swap.

if you can push up closer to ~50Gb, then increase the size of /home.

you can push / root back to ~ 7Gb - but that is getting a bit small in size
- again - it depends on what you plan to do with Mint 17x
as to how much space that you will need.
