So I have a laptop with 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD (For system files) and 1TB HDD (For data/media files). I’m installing Ubuntu 20.04 alongside my Windows 10 (also on SSD). I have the following 4 questions:
How much disk space on my SSD should I create for Ubuntu? (This should essentially be the sum of the root, home and swap, right?)
How much space should I allocate to the root partition? (25GB is what I’ve heard, just need to confirm)
Do I need to create a partition for home directory? (If I don’t, is it impossible to store data/media files on the system drive of Ubuntu?)
How much swap memory do I need? (Not sure if I plan to hibernate)
If someone could also explain how the automated partition works, that might be helpful as well to decide if at all I should do all this manually. Thanks!
