I'm running out of space on my USB 2 TB hard drive and soon I'm going to want to get a bigger hard drive. I only store MKV files on my USB 2 TB and want something that will play my uncompressed blu-ray ripped MKV files smoothly. I want to get at least a 6 TB hard drive so that I don't run out of disk space anytime soon.
I install linux on a 300GB hard drive,
I format /dev/sda1 at FAT32 at 200mb for the boot parition,
and the rest of the disk as /dev/sda2 as EXT3.
No swap space.
With servers today it's easy to get a terabyte of RAM,
for what i deal with my norm is 256GB of RAM.
Because of that, are there any reasons why i should format a hard drive having a partition identified as SWAP even though it's only 2GB
