I recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop.
I decided to create a logical partition to store my big files (music, videos, pictures...) somewhere else than the
home folder, so I created this partition during the new Ubuntu installation process in ext4 format, using the mount-point
/data. I'll later try to redirect my
/home in this
/data folder, using symbolic links.
However, I just read an article that explains how to create a storage partition after Ubuntu installation, using GParted to mount the unused space on a
/mnt/storage folder (for example).
What's the difference between these two methods, and what do you think is the best to follow?
