I have purchased a new SSD (120GB) and I had a HDD (1TB) already installed. I will install both Ubuntu and Windows on these drives. As the file space on the SSD is limited and I've read that writing to an SSD drive is discouraged, I would like to store most of the data on the HDD drive. I am aiming at faster system but also keeping the valuable data safe on the more reliable HDD and expanding the life span of the SSD.
I have already set up Windows on these drives (system files and applications on SSD, Users folder and ProgramData on HDD) and now it's time to set up Ubuntu.

If so, is it rational to store the applications on separate partitions on the HDD instead of
/ on the SSD, and what should the size of the
/ partition be in this case?
