Video Files On A Separate Partition?


golinux

Recommended Posts

I'm getting closer to upgrading to Hardy. I currently have it installed in VirtualBox and Wine 1.0 RC1 and the few Windoze apps I still use are good to go. Since I'm already running the Hardy kernel on Gutsy, I'm nearly there already. Only 'problem' is that I'll need to revert to FF 2 because Beta 3 breaks too many add-ons but that's another thread . . .

 

I'll need to reallocate the space where XP once resided. I'm thinking it might be good to use part of it for video files as I usually don't rsync video when I backup and doing it this way would save an --exclude.

 

My question is . . . will there be performance problems working with files on a different partition or will it basically be like working from a separate folder? Remember, my new box is pretty beefy.

 

Thoughts? :)

I've got Hardy installed on a separate partition but I work so little with it that I can't offer you much help. I do work with files on another partition and haven't noticed any hit to performance. I've done extremely little video work so keep that in mind.

Linux partitions are just as accessible and just as fast as directories - just don't forget to mount it in fstab :lol:

 

I'd recommend using Reiserfs (or at worst ext3) for the journalling capablities but try to avoid using ext2 for it
