    I will be tri-booting Linux (elementaryOS and Debian) and Windows 8 on a laptop for college. On Linux, you can use a seperate partition and mount it to the /home folder.

    Is it possible to do this on Windows 8? to mount the partition at C:/Users, to where instead of having a folder there, a data partition is accessed through the folder?

    In Disk Management, you should be able to mount a partition using a folder in another partition using a path instead a drive letter. So you don't assign the target partition a drive letter, but set up a path to it using the folder.
