Move home directory to new partition

Post by Nadeem » Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:42 am

Hi friends
I installed mint 19.1, then resized the root partition and created a new one for storing my data. Now I want to mount home directory on the new partition so that all data is saved there.

I'd appreciate a walk through of the procedure. Thanks a lot
