I am trying to prepare a hard drive for burst mining on linux and want to maximize the hard drive space available for the plot file. So for this I need to set the inodes to the minimum possible that uses the least amount of hard drive space. This hard drive will contain one directory and one file that is the max size of the whole hard drive. How do I do this?
I have already found out to remove the 5% system reserved space which frees up a lot, however 1.6% is still in use by the computer without any files on it. From looking it up it is due to the inode static table and I do not need support for thousands of files just one folder and one massive file the size of the drive.
