I have recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 entirely on the HDD of my Dell Inspiron 14z which has 500GB HDD + 32 GB SSD. I have 24GB of SSD lying unused and I would like to allocate about 18GB of the SSD to Ubuntu. Please tell me what is an efficient method for doing it and what specific directories(such as home, tmp or boot ) can I move onto the SSD and what can be kept on HDD.
In your place I would make it like this:
- Install the system on the SSD,
- Keep the /home mounted on the HDD
The fstab's relevant rows would look something like this:
/dev/sda1 / ext4 noatime,nodiratime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sdb1 /home ext4 noatime,nodiratime,defaults 0 2
