How do I future-proof a ZFS bpool when installing Ubuntu? (Novice)

sr flag

I have limited Ubuntu experience; a previous install of Ubuntu on my wife's laptop resulted in error messages about the ZFS pool being too small frequently and consistently.

I'm going to start from a fresh install: is there a way to set up ZFS so that I don't see these errors? Should I be making the default pool larger, or is there a command or tool I should set up to remove old snapshots and keep the pool from filling up?

The first question that comes to mind is: do you *need* ZFS? Based on the way the question is written, it seems more like overkill. If you’re not using snapshot replication or regularly rolling back to a previous snapshot, then the default Ext4 file system may be sufficient for your needs

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
