Good I would like to install manjaro on a hard disk and have on another hard disk the user data as you can do in Windows with a system disk and other data but I do not know how I could do it if during installation or after how to redirect the root / to the other hard disk.
I’d recommend you install it on the main hard drive and when it’s done, you can split everything off as required. See
As you should all already know by now, GNU/Linux is a FLOSS variant of the UNIX operating system design, and UNIX does not know the concept of drive letters, nor does it approach storage from the vantage of having different volumes. Instead, everything is mounted into a uniform directory hierarchy, so that regardless of what physical medium any particular group of files resides on ─ even if this physical medium is actually located in another computer across the…

[root tip] Use systemd to mount ANY device
Only use an automount unit if the device is not readily available at boot like removable devices and network locations.
Hope this helps!
You can set the mount point to dedicated folder: e.g. /home or /opt or …
during installation or with an existing installation.
I thought it would be easier hahahaha
What you say, do I do it with the custom installation? When you choose the partitions?
Well it’s not hard, it just requires you to

I’ll try first from virtualbox
You can set the partitions during installation, partitioning.
