File formats and controlling location of data
If I have my HDs in two logical drives. One of 18.2 GB and the other of 7x18.2 GB, can I use the larger logical drive to store my data, allowing me to change linux distros whenever I feel so inclined? I'm worried that because linux treats things as one big /home/Sean/, I wont control where it puts my data. Also, I think I've read different distros use different file formats and one might not read anothers - how frequent is this and what is the most common format?
