Re: [K12OSN] moving /home to separate drive



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Drop in a new drive, and partition/format. (use whatever tools you need here) Then mount your new drive with this
mkdir /mnt/newdrive mount /dev/sd(x) /mnt/newdrive


Go to single user mode and copy all your data over (cp -a /home /mnt/newdrive).
Unmount /home, change the fstab file to reflect your new home drive/partition and remount.
You should now be able to use the old home drive/partition for something else.
Now you should be able to choose to NOT erase the new /home partition when you to a clean install of 4.1


Anyone have something else to add?

Does anyone have any tips for moving /home to a separate drive and then upgrading to 4.1 without losing all the /home data?

Anybody got a step by step procedure written down for doing this?

Thanks so much,
