Is it possible to move the home folder to another drive after the os has been installed? :mrgreen:

Take a look at the wiki ... _partition
It makes no difference if the partition is on the same or another disk.
If you already have home in a separate partition you would still do basically the same
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thank you, i'll study this in depth tomorrow, i think i need to get my drive to auto mount first, i formated it with all the default settings of gparted, but now i don't have permission to write to it either so i think i got a bit more learning to do first. :mrgreen:
