Been a Ubuntu user for some years, but planning to change to Fedora 38. I will install in a 2 TB m2 ssd. Encrypted /
Planning on the following patitions:
- efi 1 GB
- swap 32 Luks Encrypted
- boot/efi 1 GB
- / 566 Gb Btrfs Luks Encrypted
- /data partiion of 1.4 TB (btrfs or ext4)
My question is which format is better suited for the data partition? Pros an cons for each type?
Why would you want a
/efi and a
/boot/efi? Generally you would only want one or the other.
As for the “best” filesystem there is no clear answer there. For me, I would always want the ability to take snapshots of my data so I would more or less always use btrfs or zfs for that type of volume.
With btrfs you can add the /data as a btrfs subvolume after the inatall completes.
In other words the can use the default partitioning + turning on encryption.
