http://askubuntu.com – I think this is simple, but want to make sure I am doing everything right. I have a fresh 12.04 install on my 750GB sata internal drive. I have purchased and installed an additional 1TB sata internal drive. I would like to use that drive for storage of larger files and directories. I understand how to use disk manager and gparted, but I do not understand all the choices. My primary 750gb drive is set like this: 748 - bootable filesystem Ext4 /dev/sda1 2.1 - container for logical partitions extended /dev/sda2 2.1 - swap space/linux swap /dev/sda5 What FORMAT do I use on the new disk ( (HowTos)
