CentOS 5 :: Moving Files To Second Partition?

Dec 8, 2009

Here is a dumb question (For some reason I can never remember Linux commands but can always remember DOS commands). I don't know what it is, but I think it's the "everything is a file or a directory" nature of Linux that I can't remember it.

Anyhow, I have an instance running on Amazon EC2. I have noticed recently that FreePBX (an Asterisk GUI) is warning me of shortage of disk space. So here is the output:

[root@ip-10-251-123-3 ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 9.9G 8.8G 621M 94% /
/dev/sda2 147G 188M 140G 1% /mnt

[Code].....

So, it seems that I have a lot of space in sda2 but I don't know how to access it. how to do a symbolic link (or I can search with google) to move some folders to sda2 and then link them.

Ubuntu :: Moving Tmp Partition - GDM Special Files

Aug 14, 2011

I'm in the process of moving /tmp out of the root filesystem to it's own (larger) partition. From a LiveCD I've:

1. Created the new part (ext4 format and is /dev/sda4)
2. Mounted the installed OS root filesystem (/dev/sda1) as /slash
3. Mounted /dev/sda4 as /newtmp
4. Using gksudo nautilus I'm trying to copy the contents of /slash/tmp to /newtmp

I have 4 files that won't copy - returning the error "Can't copy special files". These are related to ORBit it seems:

[code]...

Questions are: a. Will GDM or ORBit fail if I start up without these? b. Or will they just be recreated on the fly if found to be missing? c. What's the best way to proceed?

CentOS 5 :: Moving Files From CentOS VPS > Windows Home PC?

Jun 11, 2011

I am wondering what is the fastest way for me to move files from a VPS running CentOS to my home PC? I do not have FTP or anything like that installed. Are there commands I can enter in putty, for example, that will simply download an entire directory on the VPS onto my home PC?

Ubuntu :: Moving Files In Terminal \ Moving Files That Have Root Permissions?

Mar 4, 2010

I have limited experience in terminal, but let me first explain what I am trying to do to see if there is some easier way to do it. Basically I want to change the skin in aMSN. I downloaded the new skin but am unable to unzip or move it without /root permissions. I don't know how to acquire this without being in terminal. So I figured there had to be some way to go into the terminal and use it to move the unzipped folder from the desktop to the aMSN skins folder.

Ubuntu :: Moving Files To A Pendrive Renders 0 Bytes Files And Files Gets Deleted

Jun 10, 2011

I get a SD card. Put in the SD reader. It's empty. I go to my super-important-pictures-to-a-monthly-relatory folder and select all files. Select them for MOVE. Paste them on the SD card. When the move/paste process is finished, i click on the "Eject" button on top of the SD card name. Card's ejected. I can't access the card anymore. I take out the card and put on my other computer. From 300 pictures, there are only 10 available, the remaining ones are there, but with 0bytes and unrecoveable. I panic. I go back to my main computer, my pictures are not there anymore. The pictures were on the Home folder. I panic again. I reset the computer and boot on the LiveCD. I install foremost, scalpel, photorec and about everything till my USB drive complains about being filled up. I run everything and I can't recover my files. I'm in the danger of getting fired. Things like that makes Windows sounds more appealing. When you securely remove a pendrive, things get REALLY pasted there before screwing everything up with a removal.

Ubuntu :: Lost Files During Moving Files With Nautlis?

Oct 16, 2010

I was moving a folder using Nautilus from an internal drive to a USB drive when suddenly, the power failed and the system rebooted before the UPS could go into backup. After I booted the PC again, half the files are are in neither of the drives. Do they go into a temporary folder first? There's nothing in /tmp and there's no Lost+Found folder. Is there anyway to get back those files? I'll always copy and delete from now on instead of moving.

Server :: After Moving PHP Files To /var/www They No Longer Are Seen As Hosted Php Files

Feb 25, 2010

I am setting up a Demo website that I am hosting in a Debian Lenny VM, I have installed Apache, mySQL, and PHP5 I know the php server is working because if I place an info php file I can see it in the browser. However, I downloaded phpfusion, as well as phpmyadmin and they are on my desktop, I open a superuser file browser (also added write access to /var/www to everybody and copied the files over as me) and copied over the files. Once in the www folder they are no longer seen as "valid" php files, if I try to access them with iceweasel, IE, Konquerer it asks me if I want to download the file. If I look at the files on my desktop they have different icons. I have attached a screenshot. I can't tell what the difference is, but obviously there is one otherwise the icons wouldn't be different. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here or a way to rectify it?

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Recover Deleted Files From Ext3 Partition?

Feb 10, 2011

I am using CentOS 5.5.I suppose this is an oft repeated question. I accidentally deleted, using rm command, 2 wmv files. The files were in a single ext3 1Tb drive, with just 1 partition --- the ext3 one. Each file is 600 - 800mb. The 1Tb drive has only about 20Gb data.Immediately after deleting the files i unmounted the drive (/dev/sdc1). Thereafter i searched the the net and came to know of the recovery tools foremost and photorec. I have installed both of them. I am currently running both of them as root --- foremost is just showing a lot of * signs on the terminal and photorec has managed to find some txt and png files --- but no wmv.For foremost i used: /usr/sbin/foremost -t wmv -i /dev/sdc1For photorec i followed some instructions available on the web.

In the meantime, based on some post on the net i ran debugfs as root, then cd into the directory where the files were deleted. Then on typing ls -d i managed to get the inodes of the 2 deleted files and the names of the deleted files are also correct. The instructions on the net http://www.theavidcoder.com/?p=3 tell me to run fsstat and dls both of which i am unable to find in /bin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin and /sbin. So i am unable to proceed further.

Fedora :: Moving /usr To A New Partition

Jul 31, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 as a KVM guest on a CentOS host. I decided to give preupgrade-cli a shot to get Fedora 15.

After reboot, I got a not enough free space error, so I decided to add another virtual drive and move /usr to it.

The partition on the new drive is ext4 formatted (just like my / partition)

Code:

Then I mounted the new partition on /newusr, and copied the files using cp and rsync

Code:

Code:

I also tried rsync without the HAX options, same results.

I then changed my /etc/fstab to reflect the new /usr

Code:

Then I reboot and watch the booting process, it fails first at loading NetworkManager, then elsewhere, and system stops. Of course I could revert back using a live CD and try all the other options, but nothing works for me.

There is an error in /var/log/boot.log, but I don't think it is related, as it shows when booting normally as well.

Code:

Debian :: Boot - After Moving /usr To Own Partition ?

May 18, 2011

I'm running Debian Wheezy on a Dell XPS M1530 laptop, 64-bit.

I'm having a boot problem after moving my /usr directory out of the root partition and into its own partition.

I followed the "easy way" here: [url]

Basically, I moved the contents of /usr to a new partition -- renamed /usr in root to /oldusr -- and edited fstab and tried to reboot... but the boot process wasn't able to find the new /usr.

After using /dev/sda7 in fstab (to no success) I ran blkid to find the UUID and used that (again, to no success).

My fstab is below:

For what it's worth, grub is also looking different -- none of the debian backgrounds that were there previously remain. While it lists the same kernels to boot into the boot (as described above) fails.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving Partition To A New HDD ?

Jan 1, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.2 on an external HDD to test. I think it's brilliant, and want to move it to an internal HDD. What is the best way to do this? I don't want to lose all the programs / tweaks I've made to SUSE so far.

Coming from the Windows' world, it's as easy as taking an image of a partition and restoring it over a new HDD partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Moving From One Partition To Another

Dec 9, 2010

I work with ubuntu 10.10 64 bit on a hp pavilion 2713ca laptop. Everything is fine presently, except for the fact that I will be soon out of space on the actual sda6 partition (only 2 gig left).

I would like to move the ubuntu partition with all its content to a second one where there is a lot of space, that is sda2. So my question would be twofold.

1) What software can I use to do that (gparted, clonezilla, ... ) and is someone is familiar with the procedure?

2) Will there be an easy way to change the grub.cfg file? (for example, will the command grub update be enough to boot to new setup)

Ubuntu :: Stuck On Moving To New Partition

Apr 4, 2011

I have a laptop with a large harddrive. Originally I had the sda1 which was a dell recovery partition, sda2 which is my Win7 partition. I created a new primary partition to try out ubuntu. Falling in love with the OS, I wished to grow the partition but I already had 4 primary partitions.

I deleted my swap partition and converted that to an extended partition, I then grew it to a 100gb extended partition. I created 2 new primary partitions, one for swap and one for the OS..

So my drives are as follows:

This is what I have done thus far:
1. Booted to live CD
2. Mounted /dev/sda4 and /dev/sda6
3. cp -afvR /oldOSPartition /newOSPartition
4. In the NEW OS partition, I updated /etc/fstab to reflect the UUID's of the new disks.
5. I updated /etc/mtools.conf and /etc/mtab as well.
6. I rebooted to old OS partition and ran update-grub && update-grub2
7. I can see the new entries in the grub boot menu
8. I select the kernel entry for /dev/sda6 (NEW OS), it boots, but when I hit the desktop, I open an terminal and do a "mount" and I am somehow still mounted/booted to sda4 (old OS).

From here, I re-mounted /dev/sda6 to a temporary mount point and did a "cd /; grep -r 'sda4' * > /matches.txt"
I also searched for the UUID and I found no matches so I don't know why it reverted to sda4.

Even if I boot to the recovery console entry for /dev/sda6 in the grub menu, same thing, it keeps mounting sda4.

General :: Moving A Partition With Dd To Another Drive

Dec 7, 2010

Lets say I have /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 which is a 5.8 GB ext3 partition that resides on a 10GB drive. This is just a logical volume partition, one of a few... this being the one that isn't swap, the main data.

I have a 20GB drive... I want to move the LogVol00 to it, and it is /dev/sdb. I partition /dev/sdb1 to be 8192 MiB in size in gParted.

I move as such:

dd if=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 of=/dev/sdb1

The operation finishes with no problems.

Fsck reports clean... so... I run:

fsck -l /dev/sdb1

A few small errors pop up and they get fixed.

My free space remaining, as expected, is 5.8 GB.

I go into gParted and resize the partition to 15GB in size, still working on the 20GB drive.

It does so, the operation completes.

I have what I want: the partition was taken out of LVM, data was retained, I have no issues resizing it. Additionally I tried writing random junk to this new filesystem to test to see if it's broken, and also deleted 3gb of files already on it with no problems.

I just want someone to look this over and tell me if they see any problems with what I've done. I've tested this twice so far with success each time. Is there a better or easier way to do this? I do not want to keep LVM for various reasons. By the way, you might be wondering why I made the partition 8GB for an almost 6GB system. Because the first time I did it, I put down a number that was too exact and it didn't work. Overestimating to 2GB fixed the issue - I'm guessing this is probably due to block size.

General :: Moving Users To Another Partition ?

Apr 26, 2010

I have 2 harddisks, and a very new SuSE 10 installation.

Suppose I have a user called test in the users group. At present its home directory is /home/test. This is on one of the harddisks, sda.

Now I have a partition on the other harddisk /other. I would like all my users to be on sdb, so that their home directories are /other/users/test for instance for the test user.

I have played around with YaST to create another user "toets" in /other/gebruikers, but I would like to have it as /other/users/toets.

I want all the user accounts on /other.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving XFS To New EXT3 Partition

Feb 5, 2009

I have an 80 GB XFS / partition which is dying. Got some errors like this:
ata9: SError: { UnrecovData Dispar BadCRC Handshk }

It's not a problem to create another partition, I've got 2 500GB and 2 1TB disks, all EXT3. I've also 2 80 GB disks, 1 for / and 1 for /home. I will remove the 2 80 GB disks but I have a lot of stuff compiled myself. I use openSUSE 11.1. Is it possible to create a 80 GB EXT3 partition on each of the 500 GB hdd, 1 for / and 1 for /home and move the data to it? must it be done with the DD command or can I easily copy everything within a live-cd. The /boot and swap are already on one of the 500GB disks, and there is no bootrecord on the 80 GB disks.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving /usr To Separate Partition?

Jul 24, 2011

I have a dual boot system with Vista and OpenSUSE 11.3 . Linux is distributed over 2 partitions: one for /home and one root partition for all the rest. As this root partition is getting filled, I thought of taking a 10 GB partition from the Vista partition and using this for the /usr folder (= 6 GB). This partition is a primary partition, while the rest of Linux is on secondary partitions.To be save, I renamed the existing /usr to /usr-old and created an empty /usr as mount point. I changed fstab to load the root partition, the /usr partition and then the /home partition.But when I started the system, there were a lot of errors about files not found in the /usr folder, lthought this folder and is content were clearly present when browsing the filesystem. What went wrong? Hard links? Other system configurations to change? Not possible to put /usr on a separate partition?

Ubuntu :: Moving Home Directory To New Partition?

Jul 16, 2010

I am trying to move my home directory from my install partition to a new partition. I cloned my installation from a previous ~78 gb HD using g4l to a new 250 GB drive. Now that I am using the new drive i created a new partition to used for files called "files". New partition is sda3 and the boot partition is sd1. I am trying to follow this guide [URL] but I am having no success.

Ubuntu :: Gparted Crashed While Moving Partition?

Feb 28, 2011

So I was moving and resizing a ntfs partition and i just touched gparted window and it crashed!! it was about 66% of finishing the operation... Now i guess i have a big mess in my hard drive and i dont know how to start solving it! i am in a ubuntu live cd?

If i open gparted now it shows the same partition table than before resizing and moving.. so i guess now part of my data is in this unallocated space after the sda5 partition.

Ubuntu :: How Safe Is Moving A Boot Partition

Mar 2, 2011

Using gparted as shown on the partitions in the image:

sda1 is Windows 7
sda2 is swap
sda3 is root
sda4 is home

I'd like to move sda4 to the end of the drive, thus shrinking it by 20GB, and shunt every other partition along to make an extra 20GB for sda1 at the start of the drive, and expand this partition into the 20GB of space I created.

When I start moving and shrinking sda4 (before I apply and execute the command) I get a warning saying that it is very dangerous to move a boot partition and it could render my system unbootable etc etc.

How safe is it to do this? If I bork it, can I recover easily?

I assume the error has something to do with start/end disk sectors in the grub2 list (however this works these days). In short, messages like this do what they should and scare me just enough to seek assistance from this wonderful online community!

Software :: Moving Boot Partition Which Uses Grub ?

Jul 21, 2010

I need to move a Linux boot partition which uses grub into some unallocated space to its left on a hard disk in order to make more room for the partition after it. The boot code is not in the MBR but in its own partition. I have a multi-boot program which currently correctly boots the partition. The partition order will not change.

I have non-Linux software that can move the partition. The software suggests I have to run some Linux command after the move, but does not say what to do for grub. I would be glad to move the partition within Linux if that makes it easier, perhaps with gparted or kparted.

Can someone tell me if there is anything I have to do for grub if I move the partition to its left ? My multi-boot loader will find the partition to boot once I move it. If I move it with gparted or kparted do I have to do anything after that to make sure grub works correctly once my multi-boot program boots the partition ?

Slackware :: Fail To Boot After Moving The Partition ?

Dec 16, 2010

I have a system which previously have 3 OS installed on one physical HDD; WinXP on sda1, Win7 on sda2 and Slackware linux on sda3. Lilo is used as the boot loader.

Recently I bought another HDD and decided to reinstalled my Win7 on it and I use GParted to move Slackware to the original Win7 slot on my first HDD so now my Slackware partition has been move from sda3 to sda2.

I modified the /etc/lilo.conf file so that it reflects the new Slackware partition and run lilo to installed it.

The lilo installed correctly I can boot into WinXP and Win7 without problem but when I try to boot into Slackware, it fail at the root filesystem check, apparently the e2fsck still try to check sda3.

Is there anything that I can do to correct the problem without having to reinstall Linux?
