Hi forum, ☺
I have a one terabyte external hard disk that is going to be mounted on my Debian system and used for storing multimedia, and a backup of my home folder. (As individual files.)
Please help me fill in the two red questionmarks below.
# mkfs.ext3 -m ? -O dir_index,has_journal,sparse_super -T ? -L "Terabyte storage" /dev/sdb1
First question mark: Do I need to reserve any or how many percentage of an one terabyte drive for the root user?
Second question mark: What file system type would my usage be grouped under? The various options did not make any sense to me.
Anything else I should specify for my usage?
