I have 4 partitions on my disk. 1. 31 GB NTFS where Windows XP is 2. 31 GB ext4 where Ubuntu LTS is 3. 432 GB ext4 Home partition 4. 6GB extended swap for Ubuntu I have a question which is on my mind for a long time; When the time comes for the next LTS (I could not wait to ask) I would like to learn how to partition my disk when I install Kubuntu.I will not touch the windows XP and the swap partitions.I will format and install Kubuntu on the 2nd partition where Ubuntu is.But I do not want to loose my documents and pictures,which are on the home partition.So should I leave the home partiton as it is (but there are hidden files about programs on that partition)or do I have to do a fresh install and format the Home partition, if so than I have to put my documents etc to an external media. Thanks in advance.
