After a fresh install to a SSD, I have /home on the SSD. I need to know how to move it to a seperate drive. Can someone help with a how to?
How do I move /home to a different drive?
- Create new partition on the new drive with gparted and format it (I recommend ext4).
- Mount it on /mnt :
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt(change sdb1 to your real partition)
- Copy your /home to the new partition:
sudo cp -ax /home /mnt
- Tell Antergos to mount your new home on boot. Edit /etc/fstab and add:
/dev/sdb1 /home ext4 defaults 0 0
Change sdb1 with your new partition and change ext4 if you’re using a different filesystem.
This last step will not erase your /home from your SSD, but from this point all info will be stored in your new partition.
I hope this helps you get started.
