16GB of data of course. ;)

Hey, milomak!

Expect just about anything from the oldsters here on the forum after that question. Prepare yourself. Ha, ha, ha...

My suggestion, and I what I actually have right now, is that card being used as a backup for mission-critical files.
Currently running Debian 9 GNOME on a Dell OptiPlex 3010, Dell Inspiron 1545, and a Dell Inspiron 531.

if it is a mini sdcard you could put secret stuff on it and hide it in your shoe?

I thought the obvious answer was stuff originally on vhs.

wouldn't that be way too slow?

i think i'd use it for backups; if you exclude the right directories it might even hold a full system backup?

or just some extra data... maybe make it portable.

This (and swap) is probably one of the worst uses of an SD card.
/tmp must be fast and stand repeated writes, just the opposite of an SD card.

i currently don't have swap so it can't be worse surely?

A slow and unreliable swap can be worse than no swap.
