A few days ago somebody here posted that they needed to rebuild their server. They were using 100% of the space on / instead of using a /home/ partition. That got me wondering why having a separate partition for your data isn’t promoted more, are there any disadvantages to this? I’m thinking about things like permissions problems after changing the system, getting the drive to mount properly at boot, quickbox seeing the drive correctly etc
Have any of you experience using this setup?
