Drive setup

In the past I use to use a laptop with Arch. This laptop contained a small SSD and a big HDD. Thus, I tried to set it up optimally.

F2FS seemed like the best option for an old SSD, which does not have much writes. So I used that at the time.

On the HDD I just used ext4. My opt partition is set to 13GB instead of 8GB. Previously it didn’t have enough space to install CUDΑ for nvidia.

SSD - F2FS HDD - ext4
/boot EFISYSTEM 260M /var 8GB
/ The other free space /opt 8GB, in some cases 13GB
/home The other free space
