I just upgraded my RAM in my Acer Aspire TC-885-ACCFLi5 from 16GB to 32GB. I have
2x1TB SSDs and
1x2TB HDD. I dual-boot between an Arch-based and a Debian-based distros. I use one of my SSDs for my
/Swap. The other SSD and the HDD are used for storing large files as well as anything shared between my two distros like GIMP and Inkscape projects, backup directories, etc.
My previous SWAP partition is 16GB . Is there any reason to why I should not leave it alone and let my desktop use 32GB RAM + 16GB swap?
I have 2 primary partitions on my primary SSD: 1GB for
/Boot, and 16GB for
/Swap. The remainder is an extended partition divided into 2x36GB for both
/Debian-Root. And finally the remaining amount of roughly 885GB-ish is for my
/Home partition. (I realize those should all be lowercase, but I made them uppercase for readability.)
Any input into whether I should increase, decrease, or leave it alone would be great to learn. Thanks!
