I’m on a new computer I just built, and it’s working pretty good. However, I made a bit of an omission and I’m not sure of the best way to fix it. When I ran the Manjaro installer, it only offered partitioning suggestions for Disk0 (500GB SSD), so I forgot to set Disk1 (2TB SSD) to mount as “/home”. So my “/home” is now on Disk0, which isn’t what I wanted.
So, what’s the best way to move /home from Disk0 to Disk1?
One idea that did occur to me was this:
- Add a line to /etc/fstab to mount the UUID of Disk1 as “/home”
- sudo systemctl daemon-reload
- Log out
- Log-in on TTY2 as root
- mv /home /home_OLD
- mkdir /home
- mount /home
- cp -R -p /home_OLD/* /home/
Would that work?
And even if that would work, seems a tad complicated; is there any better way to move “/home” from one device to another?
