I’m somewhat new to the Linux world. I have a desktop with a 240GB SSD and a 4TB HDD. I would like to set my system up where I have Ubuntu on my SSD, and all my personal files (Games, Programs Pictures etc) on my HDD.
I originally plugged in just my SSD and chose the Erase the disk and install Ubuntu option but when I connected and reformatted my HDD I needed to be root any time I wanted to write anything to it.
Then, I tried installing with both drives attached. I put my root and boot partitions on my SSD and the
/home partition on my HDD. When I did this GRUB would not install. My SSD was designated sdb and my HDD was sda my partitions on my SSD were / 8000MB /Boot 1000MB and on my HDD /Home 4TB.
Is there a better partitioning scheme, or can I do what I did the first time to install, and change the permissions on my HDD so I don’t need to elevate to root any time I want to write or delete something?
I also created a 16GB SWAP partition on my SSD as I have 16GB of RAM.
