First off, I'd like to say hi, this is my first post and it probably won't be my last! XD I'm brand new to dealing with Linux so I've been trying to figure stuff along the way.
Something I haven't been able to solve myself is a certain weird situation:
Under my filesystem, I have a bunch of files. This includes my /home and /root directories, but it also includes a folder called host.
My entire hard drive is the partition, so around 480 GB; Linux Mint OS is installed and seems to act like a separate partition, as it has a cap of 20 GB, but is only filled to ~11GB.
My /home and /root folders seem to be designated under the OS folder and not in the rest of the hard drive, so my space for programs and games is extremely limited.
I'm not so worried about my /root folder, but how would i move /home safely under the /host folder (assuming this is what the rest of my blank hard drive is designated under)? I'd really just like to use up the extra space and not be confined to such a small space. I thought that re-partitioning would have been the solution, but as I said, somehow my entire hard drive is the partition.
*As a note, Linux Mint is the only OS I have on this hard drive, I have windows on my first HD and installed Linux first from mint4win and then did the installation from inside Mint.
I've tried to be as descriptive as possible. As a newb however I don't know how unique of a predicament I have, or If I've described the problem enough. Any help would be appreciated!
