Talk:Adding a second hard drive to your HDA

At the top of the page it recommends ext3, but all the examples on the bottom half of the page seem to be using ext4. I checked, and my hda appears to be using ext4 over an LVM partition. Should I be using ext3 or ext4, or does it matter?

In any event, the inconsistency is slightly confusing.

         Photos -> /var/hda/files/drives/sdb1/Photos

... but to my surprise the files loaded into /dev/sda (system disk). Then I noticed that the Amahi Jome Server > Storage page showed the new disks as:


.... consequently for going to the new disks the shares had to be created respectively:

         Photos -> /var/hda/files/drives/drive1/Photos
         Movies -> /var/hda/files/drives/drive2/Movies
