I've got a virtual Linux server running on Microsoft Azure. The machine has a disk
/dev/sdb1 mounted to
/mnt. This folder contains a file
DATALOSS_WARNING_README.txt with the following content:
WARNING: THIS IS A TEMPORARY DISK.
Any data stored on this drive is SUBJECT TO LOSS and THERE IS NO WAY TO RECOVER IT.
Please do not use this disk for storing any personal or application data.
For additional details to please refer to the MSDN documentation at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj672979.aspx
I was wondering if it was safe to store the swap file for my Linux server on this disk? Or might this lead to problems?
