Disclaimer: I’m absolutely new to Linux (just installed Manjaro the other day on an 500GB SSD I acquired from work). I know hardly anything about the hierarchy, file system, you name it, so expect very basic and newb questions. I caught myself searching the forums and Google but didn’t see anything directly related to my questions below.
My main purposes are to learn how to use it, not only as a regular user for everyday use, but also possibly as a Sys Admin (just started the Zero to Red Hat by Sander van Vugt roughly a week before installing).
Here’s my situation: I’ve exclusively used single HDD’s in the past with External’s holding backups of music, movies, docs, etc. I installed Manjaro to see if what I do everyday can be done and the answer is, so far, yes (a couple of things have to be done through a Windows 10 eval VM, but that’s beside the point). I have installed a couple of games and game launchers (Epic, Origin, Vortex Mod Manager) through Lutris (since games aren’t native to Linux, this was my biggest worry). I have a 4TB HDD with Windows 10 and all of my programs/docs/music/games (which is where I’m moving from; not wiping yet just in case) as well as several 250-750GB HDD’s (also acquired from work) laying around. What I will want to do in the near future is to start installing games on one HDD, have music on another, etc., since these take up so much space.
Everything is installed on the SSD (default partitioning; again, completely new to Linux)
- If it’s possible, can someone guide me on how to take the games that are already installed on the SSD and migrate them to one of the other blank drives?
- If it’s not possible, how do I uninstall the games (I would assume removing Epic Games is as easy as going into Lutris and clicking remove, but I could be wrong)?
Losing progress on the entire install is not an issue, so if re-installing Manjaro is the most convenient way for me to get on track, that’s completely OK as this was mainly a test install.
