    In general if you increase the container you also have to increase the file system and or partition usage. The file system/partitions do not get their info from the container you have to tell what size you want them.

    LVM is a type of container that allows spanning multiple disks and also applying encryption over multiple virtual partitions and file systems

    No need to split. Copy on write may get in the way. Turning off this feature for selected subtrees is straight forward, as is turning off snapshots for subvolumes, such as /var, /usr/local, /srv, /root, /opt, /home and others.

    A single partition occupying all available space on a drive and seamless snapshots are the most significant features of btrfs.
