I used to have a Windows 7 setup on my desktop.
C:\ for system. D:\ for data.
Now I've decided to install Ubuntu as the main OS:
\ for Ubuntu (80Gb) swap for swap D:\ I kept this partition for the data. It still contains my data.
I've opened the file system and noticed that I can access the data on it, I just have to "mount" it? It seems Ubuntu is doing that for me though as I haven't had to configure anything.
Will creating a fixed size Virual Machine disc (VirtualBox) on the mounted (
D:\) partition make my virtual machine slower than if it were on a regular ext4 partition?
