There is really no difference between the two. Your data is still stored in the very same locations regardless. The issue is when people mount a
/home partition and leave little to no space on
/. Things such as a Plex Library with a lot of data can easily exceed 10 or even 20GB given enough media and time.
When installing just one
/ partition, this issue does not exists due to plenty of space allowed to drive... all of it in fact.
QuickBox has no issues rendering the data from either a
/ or a
/home partition. The issue arises when people use pointless mounts such as
/data on an install. There really is nothing wrong with that, as that is a matter of labeling and preference I suppose, however; QuickBox is aimed at a typical market rather than a global market... typical being the standard mounts you would find with the majority of providers on the market.
