Partitions Fedora Workstation 26


I am planning to install Fedora Workstation 26.
I have 1TB HDD and 4GB RAM (Core i5 processor).
Please suggest me partitions for system.

I have always used recommended partitions and LVM.

As i keep on trying different distributions please suggest me proper partitions so that it wouldn't be necessary to back up my data every time i change my distribution.

First, you should ALWAYS back up your data, no matter what. Secondly, there is no way for anyone to tell you what you should use or not for partitions. The only thing I'd suggest us putting your /home on a separate partition. Other than that, use whatever you'd like.

This question has been asked and answered many, MANY times on this site. Read the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature, and please do a search/basic research first before posting. Such as the one you asked just a few months ago:

LVM, properly managed, is fine for multiple distros.
If not confident, another option is to set aside several partitions for root of different installs. I do this on some machines, but requires some management of boot-loader and fstab. For convenience I use specific device node names for swap as new installs tend to unilaterally run mkswap and change the UUID.

As mentioned, it's basically up to you how you work.
