Ubuntu 13.04 is installed on a SSD. I also have a HDD in the computer.
I want the SSD to continue having relatively high speed for as long as possible.
My /home/ folders (including the Desktop) tend to having things written and deleted, which isn't ideal for SSD.
I want Ubuntu to be installed in the SSD, but I want my /home/ folders to be on the HDD (but only the folders whose names don't start with .).
I did have a try to do this from the terminal, but I couldn't work out if modifying fstab (by changing UUID) only allocated /home/ to the: (a) HDD; or (b) a folder on the HDD (which is what I wanted).
I therefore used ubuntu-tweak 0.8.6.
It has been partially successful:
- Nautilus>Places>Desktop is OK.
- Nautilus>Places>Home>Desktop is different, and it should be the same.
- Nautilus>Places>Documents is OK.
- Nautilus>Places>Home>Documents is different, and it should be the same.
I tried to attach screenshots that I have of these examples but I got an error message ("You need a reputation of at least 10 to post images").
Any ideas how to complete the process, such that:
- Nautilus>Places>Home>Desktop is the same as Nautilus>Places>Desktop.
- Nautilus>Places>Home>Documents is the same as Nautilus>Places>Documents.
- ...and so on for all the /home/ folders
