Replace a drive
« on: July 10, 2006, 07:41:55 pm »
I am currently running my Pluto Core with two drives in it. One 20GB drive I have all my file systems except /home on it.

Then I have a 160GB drive with my /home dirrectory.

I just bought a 320GB SATA drive and I would like to replace the 160 with it.

I don't know much about Linux. and instructions or tips? I could just reinstall the Core but I would rather not loose all my data.

try to replace the drive and save /home to some place
after that, format the 320GB drive as a ext3 and set te mount point "/home"
the copy the /home directory previouslly saved and it should work,
I hope this works, i didn't test it. Anyway, i think this remains your only solution.
