General :: Move /home To Ntfs Partition?

Sep 5, 2010

There was a Toshiba Satellite notebook with XP I decided to install Fedora 13 in dual boot mode.So, I booted with Gparted and shrunk the ndows XP partition to just 24 GB.Then I set up partitions for Linux this way/boot, ext4 256 MB/, ext4 16 GB/home, ntfs 176 GBswap, 8 GBI intentionally left about 8 GB left just in caseThen I proceeded to install Fedora 13.I used the customized mode to use the already set up partitions and keep Windows XP.At the moment of setting the mounting points, fine with /boot, / and swap. But Anaconda wouldn't accept mounting point for /home.I went on anyway.Fedora got set up and run moothly.However, /home resided in / with only 10 GB left.And the /home partition could be seen as a separate disk with its 176 GB.This is /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Sun Sep 5 05:46:26 2010

Ubuntu :: Move / Home To Existing / Home Partition?

Jul 1, 2011

Been digging around and not finding anything that quite works.

Background: I had an existing 10.10 install and 10.04 on another partition. When I installed the 10.04 I told it to use the existing /home partition which is also being used by the 10.10 install. All good, both users have directories with all their data in the same /home partition.

Issue: So, as the 10.04 was 32bit (experimenting but another story) I decided I would replace with 10.04 64bit. All went well except when I did the manual partitioning I screwed up and instead of setting the existing /home partition to 'use but don't format' - which I think is what I must have done last time - I left it as 'don't use and don't format'. So, obviously, now the new 10.04 install has its /home inside /, which I don't want. I want it on the existing /home partition as it was with the previous 10.04 install.

Question(s): Is there any simple(ish) way of doing this without a reinstall? Not a major problem as I have only just installed and can do it again without losing anything but time, but I would like to figure out a way to do it without if possible.I want to essentially move the /home/user directory (rather than the /home) and make it /media/home/user inside the existing partition. Seems easy enough on the surface but becomes involved as I investigate.Ubuntu 10.04 minimal install with Xfce DE.

Ubuntu :: Delete Folders Or Files On NTFS Partition Not A Option To Move To Waste Basket

Nov 24, 2010

10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?

OpenSUSE Install :: Move /home To Another Partition With Yast?

Jul 18, 2010

Im using suse 11.1 with /home on a separate partition. To move my /home to a larger partition it looked easy to use Yast partitioner. I copied all /home/ files first to the new partition and backed-up fstab.

with Yast I unmounted /dev/sdb6 = /home and mounted it to /local
then unmounted /dev/sda4 = mynewhomepartition and mounted it to /home

checking the new fstab it looked fine but after a restart it did not work and I got an error. resetting the original fstab resetted the system as it used to be. My question is: why does it not work, are there (hidden) files with the old or other settings?.

Ubuntu Installation :: Move /home To A Separate Partition?

Jan 11, 2010

I want to move my home directory to a separate partition so I can install the new versions of Ubuntu without losing my data. And while I'm at it, what other important directories should I move to separate partitions? And how do I do it? I'm guessing that the /boot directory should also be moved to its own partition too, yes? Because it has the GRUB in it, and if I removed Ubuntu to make way for a newer version of Ubuntu, I'll just get an error because the computer can't find the GRUB that doesn't exist anymore, right? And also, if I move those important yet-to-be-listed directories to their own separate partitions, how large should those partitions be?

I don't want to miss out on the upcoming Lucid Lynx (If it will work in the first place, of course ) By the way, I have an Ubuntu-Windows XP dual-boot system. I'll attach a screenshot of my partition table from GPartEd. You can see that I have about 300 GB. The largest partition is Ubuntu.

Fedora Installation :: Setup Dual Bood Data Partition And Move /home?

Feb 21, 2009

I have just spent dome time using gparted to sort out my partitions. I have a vista partition, a fedora one and a big chunk of unallocated space I wish to use as my data drive.

I want to move my ~ folder to the new partition and have windows/vista access the folder and write to the Documents, Downloads folders etc.

What is the best format to use?

Also I plan to start backing up my partitions to a server, for instance using g4l to save a linux image (maby a windose one too). Is there any benifit in keeping all the hidden files (ones starting with period '.') i.e moving the whole ~ folder or would I be best off leaving the ~ dir and moving the folders I know i use such as ~/Downloads, ~/Documents etc?

And how should i preform the move of all these files? 'mv'? do i need to add any special options?

Ubuntu :: Make A Partition Of The /home Folder NTFS And The System Ext4?

I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

General :: Can't Rename/move Files From OSX That Were Copied From NTFS

Jun 29, 2010

I recently had data recovered and it was sent back to me on what I think is an NTFS drive. I copied all the files over to a file share I have on a Linux box, that's ext4. Now I have that share mounted on my OSX machine, and I can't move or rename most of the files. However, in a couple cases I was able to rename a folder after the third try. Another time I was able to rename a folder once, but not again. All the permissions are showing up the same on the command-line -- I can't see any differences between the permissions on any of the files/folders. Note that I can create new folders and add files no problem, and then rename and move those all I want.

General :: Possible To Put Home Directory On NTFS Volume?

May 25, 2011

I'm setting up a dual-boot system, and want users to be able to access their stuff regardless of what OS is currently loaded. Ideally, I'd like to set it up so that the same Firefox profile is used in both Windows 7 and Linux, as well as the same "home" directories, but I don't think that is possible. At best, I plan to use shortcuts and symbolic links to make it easy to navigate. In any case, is there any major problem with setting up both Windows and Linux to use the same partition for storing user's directories? The primary shared things will be Open Office/Microsoft Office documents and Firefox setups.

I haven't decided if I'm putting Ubuntu or Fedora on this system. I'm more familiar with Fedora, but need to increase my familiarity with Ubuntu. I'm going to go with whatever will give me the least hassles with the setup I just described. On the other hand, I'm unsure if I even need to make a dual boot. I have VMWare, and I'm not sure what advantages there are to making a dual boot over VMware in my case. The only advantage I can see is:

1. Having Linux as a boot option kinda forces me to actually use it once I choose Linux. Thus, I become more familiar with it, and need to reboot the computer in order to use Widows.
2. Linux gives me an emergency boot option is the Windows section gets corrupted beyond what chkdsk and the other emergency recovery options can fix. Counterbalanced by the ability to boot the old Vista OS that came with the computer.
3. The full resources of the computer are available to Linux. Not so much an issue today, but maybe in a few years. This is counterbalanced by the fact that all my games are in Windows, and I can't think of anything else I'd do with Linux that would put such demands on the system. Yeah, I might use it as a server, but that is more to LEARN how to set up and configure servers. I believe it is against Comcast Cable's TOS to run an permanent server with the necessary dynamic DNS registration.

I have no need for a permanent DNS server. If I need name resolution, I'd just put it in my hosts file. I already use that to block ads, so sharing it with all my systems is no problem. I don't have that many. So, the only reason I can really think of is to force myself to use Linux by booting Linux, rather than take the lazy way with Windows.

General :: Move Partition In GParted?

Apr 10, 2010

The following is a screenshot of GParted run on my system. There is a small unallocated space at the beginning of the list. This 1 MiB space is kind of annoying and I'd like to merge with any other partition except /dev/sda1, /dev/sda6 and /dev/sda4. When I right click on the unallocated partition, the only available operation is "New". And, if I click on "New", I get the following error message.

It is not possible to create more than 4 primary partitions

how to go about merging the small unallocated space with other partitions?

General :: Move The Srv Directory To Another Partition?

Jun 28, 2010

When installing Ubuntu (10.04) I chose the /home to be installed in a separate partition.I would now like to move the /srv directory into the same partition. The problem I found is that Ubuntu did not make a /home directory inside the partition itself. It just places the account directories in the partition and mounts it to /home. So I cannot just easily move the /srv folder into the partition.

How can I:

Move those account directories into a home folder inside the partition Make that new home folder the default /home folder. ditto with the /srv folder, or any I choose in the future.

General :: Move A Folder From One Partition To Another?

Mar 12, 2010

Anyways, I recently got into the whole HTPC scene, and picked up an Acer Revo for my self, with a media center OS (XBMC) that was apparently modded from Ubuntu. Keep in mind that I can only use the terminal for any of this, as the GUI is just for video settings, etc.

So, XBMC just totally crashed on me, and the GUI stopped working. The files were still there, I just couldn't watch them. After many hours of tinkering, I decided to just reinstall XBMC, but make two partitions, and then move my movies and stuff to the new, working partition, and afterwards, delete the old, non working one.

I just don't know how to move from one partition to another.

So, can someone explain, in absolute layman terms, how to move my "Movies" folder from my first partition, to the New one?

General :: Cannot Restore Ntfs Partition

Jul 26, 2011

On my computer on the first disk /dev/sda was installed win2k system bootable with
native win2k bootloader. I created imges of that partition using Ghost4linux na Clonezilla. Images were placed on the second computer using sshfs. For all this tasks i used PartedImage LiveCD.

I removed old partition and created a new ntfs partition on the same disk. When I used GParted or native Win2k partitioner the partition I get was smaller: the difference is a few bytes. Finally I used the Linux fdisk. Now the size was OK, but after restoration win2k was unbootable: I tried to recover the win2k but it was even impossible to locate a system on the partition. So I tried to move all the partition at the very beginning of the disk. Now at least I was able to mount (under Linux) the partition. But again win2k was unbootable and unrecoverable.

It seems for me that the partition is missplaced. According to Ghost4Linux the partition begins with an offset 0x56. I suspect that it should be rather 0x80.
