I got an Acer Aspire 5 with 8 GB RAM and 1 TB hard disk drive, and I need some advice of how to part my memory, today running Fedora and Windows on dual boot. I bought a 250 GB Samsung EVO 970 SSD to install Ubuntu and stop using Fedora (didn't get used to it).
What I have in mind:
- Keeping at least 500 GB for Windows, because I need to use Adobe programs on it, I am not used to Gimp or Inkscape yet. And run Visual Studio once in a while for little projects. As my laptop is not a powerhouse I am forced to use Windows as a host.
- The SSD will be used only for Ubuntu, but I would like to use half of the hard disk drive to keep bigger files and such.
- If possible I'd like to use the hard disk drive as the home partition and easily access it.
Could you help me? I'd love to see real numbers of how would you make you partitions, e.g. 90 GB for root, 150 GB for home, 4 GB for swap, etc.
