The use% of most my partitions (including
/home, and two ntfs partitions shared between Windows and Ubuntu) are more than 90%.
Now I plan to replace my hard drive with a bigger one, and install a new Ubuntu release. So I will have to design how much the size of each partition will be.
Are there some rules of thumb that suggest what percentage of unused space for a partition will be good for whatever reasons, such as
- not stressing out due to limit space,
- ext's auto defragmentation,
For example, is it generally better to keep 50% unused for some above reasons? Will 50% unused be a waste? what range of percentage is better for balancing between space wasting and other factors?
Does the filesystem type matter? I am now using ext4 and ntfs, but will probably use ext4 exclusively after I install a latest Ubuntu release.
