I have partitions,
/ is mounted on
/dev/sda1, while all other data is on
sda2 which has more size allocated to it.
I want to save the virtual machine images (
VirtualBox Disk Image) on
My question is, should I expect any difference in performance if I access data from the second partition?
tl;dr -- is there is any difference in performance if I have to access data located on a different partition? If yes, does it make sense to decrease seek times by moving data to
Please note that this may be one of those micro-optimization issues but I want to squeeze every possible inch of performance I can for the VMs.
