I want to get the list's advice on disk partitioning. I have a laptop with 74Gb hdd. At the first I thought to partition it having single partition on it - it is very useful - no need to look for the free space of a partition - if whole disk is full then it is full - unlike with several partitions on it - when it is necessary to move data from one to another just to have the necessary sum of free space. Then I sought on defragmentation of fs, that it would be much less defragmented/higher_performance/longer_hdd_life if I divide the often changable data from relatively constant - that is the OS files from var/home/other_storage dirs. So, I decided to use at least 2 partitions. What is the list opinions and arguments on this matter regarding what have been said? Big thanks.
