So I have a home server with 4 hdds:
hdd1: 60Gb (SSD - OS drive)
hdd2: 4TB (data drive)
hdd3: 2TB (data drive)
hdd4: 1TB (data drive)
So I intend installing ubuntu server onto hdd1 (ssd drive) with other drives simply being a data drives. So now I'm thinking about partitioning those data drives....
Do I even need to partition data drives? Can I just format them to ext4 and mount them?
Is partitioning always needed?
