I have a question on this. I have a drive that I use for movies and
such. There is nothing OS related on that drive. Would it be safe to
set this to say 1% or even 0? Also, it is already set up with LVM and
ext4. Can I change it even while there is data on there? I ask because
I don't want to change it and find out my collection is gone. o_O

Thanks.
