[OPEN] SSD/HDD directories setup?

Post by JTByTheSea » Mon May 20, 2019 3:42 am

I have an HP Omen with 2 drives. One is 128GB SSD, the other 1TB HDD. I like to play games. In particular, Fallout and Skyrim (with LOTS of mods). What are your recommendations/thoughts for setting up the directories? I know the /root on the SDD, but any/which others and suggested sizes.

There are as many setups as there are persons.

If you have seen my video's you know my setup.

Just one big / and anything I need, including games progress etc goes into the cloud.

I am not keen for keeping a home partition. It will keep all remnants of older installed files and folders and I had to help people afterwards, who had issues with permissions and applications. They had a separate home folder partition.
