I started using manjaro (i3 edition) on my laptop almost a year ago and I finally decided to change my main system’s operating system too. Anyhow I still have some questions regarding the change.
My current setup is:
Ryzen 5 1600
32GB DDR4 (3400 Mhz)
Samsung 960 Pro 250GB (OS-Drive)
Samsung 850 Evo 500GB (SSD Cache using PrimoCache)
WD Gold 6TB (Steam library, Blender Stuff, etc… Accelerated by PrimoCache)
I heard many people recommending me to just mount /home to my HDD but this will also leave all user config files, etc. on the HDD while I only want large files (downloads, documents, pictures,…) on my slow HDD.
How can I leave /home on my SSD while storing some directories on my HDD, should I just create a symlink?
How can I share my Steam library between users, should I just change the steam library path to /mnt/hdd1/SteamLibrary or is there a better solution?
How about Snap apps, is there a way to save them to a specific drive/folder?
Can I use my old SSD as a HDD Cache on Linux?
I know there are already some guides talking about these problems online but everyone seems to have a different approach to solving these problems, some of the guides are dated and I don’t really know who I can trust so I decided to ask here.
Thanks for your help in advance and have a nice day everyone
