I have already seen some answers about this but I'd like to get clarification on my particular use case. I have a 1 TB SSD and a 2 TB HDD. I train deep learning models so the SSD is key as I need the fast I/O. On my previous computer I had one hard drive and I went with the paradigm of putting everything I work with under
/home/user. So I think I want to set things up such that:
- Everything sits on my 1 TB SSD as usual. For this I've created a boot partition (512 MB), and then a normal partition mounted to
/for the rest of the disk space.
- Then I'll use my 2 TB HDD as a place to store things I don't frequently use. Maybe I'll put my deep learning data there, and pull it onto my SSD when I need to train a model.
The guides I've come across are mostly telling me to mount SSD to
/ (as I've done) and the HDD to
/home but I don't want to do the latter, as then I wouldn't get that fast I/O for when I'm accessing data. So I've left the SSD mounted to
/, and now I just don't know what to do to make sure the HDD is accessible. What do I mount it to?
PS: I am literally on the Ubuntu installation screen now.
And another quick question. I'll also be cheeky and play some computer games on the side using Wine. I saw on a guide that these should be installed in the HDD. Is that right?
