I often end up wiping my whole system and i lose:
my mail: mail, addresses, folders, filters, pgp...
my bookmarks: for opera, the browser i love!!
I have tried to remedy this problem by creating a separate partition during installation for /home.
It helps, but eventually i banjax the /home too and make such a mess i need to wipe everything as i don't know how to untangle stuff.
SO, i want to keep the critical files for my mail and browser on a dedicated partition. THat way they should be safe forever!
How do i do this? I have left space on the hdd for a new partition.
