My computer doesn't really have much hard drive memory available (10 GB at most). It was a very cheap computer (Asus x205TA) , I bought it for $200. It runs on Windows 8.1 32bit on a x64 processor.
I want to learn to use Linux command line. I installed the Cygwin on my C drive and installed many many packages on them. I am also learning Ruby on Rails and Git. So I don't know how exactly this happened but I used up more than 9 GB of memory. Because of this, I deleted the Cygwin directory along with all of it subdirectories and files, thinking that I could easily download and install the Cygwin and all of its packages on my SD drive instead.
So because it might take a really long time until I see if it's going to work or not, I figured I'd ask the community if you think there is going to be any problem if I install and try to run the Linux like terminal Cygwin on my SD drive (64GB).
