…sorry, should have posted to the “discussion” area…
working my way through setting up my computer. Following suggestions I have moved my /home to a new RAID disk, using directions in the link below, and it all seems to be fine. I have additional directories under /, namely /apps and /media, that I would also like to move to the new disk.
The new disk currently has one extended partition with one logical partition for /home. I am assuming one way to do it is to make additional logical partitions for /apps and /media on the new disk and follow the same procedure I did for /home. However, while I had /home, /apps, /media all under /, I did not have to specify a partition for each, and each could grow as they needed all within /.
That is sort of what I was hoping to have in the new disk – i.e. /home, /apps, /media all within the same partition so I did not have to specify a storage size for them, and they could grow as they needed all within one partition being equal to the size of the extended partition, which right now is the size of the disk. Am I making sense ?..
…am thinking that since /home, /apps, and /media will not be under the partition for /, I may have to bite the bullet and make additional logincal partitions in the extended partition of the new disk… ?
