This question has surely been answered somewhere else but I'm having trouble finding it.
I'm in a situation where I'm moving my root file system from a Debian install off of a hardware RAID and onto an internal USB. I want to keep the partition small and relatively secure. The goal is to keep frequent read/writes off the root partition for stability reasons. I have prepped a
RAID10 disk with a few different partitions, one for
/home and I will put the rest of the movable directories on another partition and bind them in
The question I have is, what directories can/should I move out of the root partition and mount them with
/mnt, and others can't/shouldn't be moved out of the root partition as they are required on boot and well, fstab to even function.
Note: When I mention "move", I mean to say to keep the parent directory though move the contents.
