I have some installation questions. If these are not appropriate for these forums, I apologize. Also, this is what I understand from what I’ve read, but I don’t want to get hip-deep and have had a massive misunderstanding over something basic that really turns into a disaster.
What I want to do is have 3 sets of data on 4 disks:
Disk 1: Base Filesystem (root, swap, etc) (Smallest current disk easily available, xxxGB)
Disk 2: “/home” (Around 640gb-1tb)
Disk 3: “/?” Various Media (Media of Various Types: Video, Music, ISOs, etc) (~2TB)
Disk 4: “/?” Continuation of Disk 2 (~2TB)
Basically, I want to make sure I understand that if I install my system as a split root/swap on disk 1 it will stay on disk 1. (So if it crashes it doesn’t affect the others.) And in turn I can specifically mount Disk 2 as “/home” and it will only hold “home” info. (Separate from anything else.)
And lastly, what’s the common way of placing huge amounts of media as a mount-point. Is it typically a subdirectory somewhere, or a common name elsewhere? (Example “/personal-files” - with sub directories such as “…/music”, “…/video”,”…/iso”, etc) If it’s a subdirectory from the root, can I set that as a mount point for additional disks as needed? (The last point was never pointed out directly in anything I’ve read so far.)
When I add additional disks and give them the same mount point (ideally as in the case of disk 4) will it just add to the storage?
Thanks for any help.
