Whonix Workstation image comes with a 100GB hard drive (/dev/sda) for general work, which is a fair size. But I want to run a local node for the Monero cryptocurrency on my Whonix machine and use it on the workstation. I was wondering if it’s better to simply create a fixed size (e.g. 200 GB) VDI file to store the blockchain or if I should use the dynamic sized feature that is supposed to be future-proof (once the blockchain passes 200 GB it will increase the storage device size to accommodate it).
So what’s the best option in this case? Dynamic size or fixed size? Are there big differences (that one can notice) in terms of disk speed, writing speed?
