I have been playing with LibreELEC the last week and it’s running great on my Atom-based x86 Motherboard, playing me 1080P and serving as some very basic file (Resilio) sync server from a Docker-container.
I have a chance to get 2 GB SSD for it, should I?
I’ve tried to backup my LibreELEC installation via settings and it took me less than 2 GB (during the backup process I have noticed it stores thumbnails somewhere inside the backup, which I probably don’t need to). Though my first backups were like 50…100 MB or so.
I can either do a restore from my backup or try to do clean install and repeat the steps I need (won’t take too much time for me, since it’s very basic usage).
Would just 2 GB storage be enough for my needs, or is it too little? And if it would be enough for the very basic installation, will it be cluttered with things like thumbnails and another type of cache over time? Is there an option to symlink those folders to my SATA-connected HDD?
The reason of this solution is that I guess SATA interface would be better than USB Flash Drive (SATA 2 vs USB 2, actually).
I can get new 120 GB SSD for cheap ($25), but this option will delay me on time by few weeks at least, due to various local reasons. Or I can get my (used now) 32 GB SSD, but much later, like by the end of the year. That’s why I’m considering this 2 GB option, as I thought right now maybe it’s the best option among USB and just a regular HDD.
Would appreciate any thoughts on that! Cheers.
