I am v happy to have a moderator helping me! Thank u, August One!
I want the dedicated partition to be read write as i want the file containing the continually updated changes to my address book and the growing contents of my mailbox to be kept upto date in real time.
I think backing up is a good idea. I tried this when the box was redhat 9. I tried to copy paste the /home/yeehi/.mail file to my windows box. The file transfer went but some of the folder contents were not copied over, so that was tough. Maybe coz the partition on the linux box was not vfat. I think therefore that the dedicated partition should be vfat...?
Wow! I really have to lay into this fedora to get it going right for me.
But i can handle that
