While I have a file-server, I don't actually use it for syncing, I do that using Dropbox. That reminds me that I wanted to try that with Owncloud.

You should try spideroak.com cloud storage as it is more secure than Dropbox. Spideroak claims they are secure and private because they don't store your encryptions keys on their servers which means no one including the staff at spideroak can't see or access your files.

Like you, I only keep non sensitive files for backups

For a few years I used ReiserFS – now I use ext4.

Each my machine uses four partitions:

1. For the Linux which I administer (Mint).
2. For the Linux which I use (Slackware).
3. For data.
4. For swap.

On my main compute/laptop.

/dev/sda1 ext3 Grub 100Mib
/dev/sda2 ntfs windows7 100GiB
/dev/sda3 ext4 Test 58GiB
/dev/sda5 Swap space 5GiB
/dev/sda6 ext4 Data 335Gib
/dev/sda7 ext4 Main 65GiB

When i boot up, i mount sda1 Which is a chainloading bootloader partition at /Grub. I mount sda6 at /Data which i symlink into my home folder. The other partitions don't get mounted.

cool thread, it's interesting to see how others set up.
