Have you assigned "/home" to a new partition you have created in HardDrake
(And now you can't see the original partition)?
When you mount a partition on a mount point, it hides the content of the
mount point (which is a directory. So if you added a new mount point , the
original content of that directory is not avaialble.
What you need to do:
* Log out of your original user. Nobody should use any file in /home
* press ctrl-alt-F1 to get to a console. Login as root
* Run the following commands:
If you have an error here: don't continue. If you get an error about
something "busy": chances are some process uses a file in /home and it is
impossibl to unmount it at-the-moment.
Now you should have the original content of /home available. To verify
ls -l /home
next: move the original content to a different directory:
mv /home /home_orig
No, remount the new partition on /home. But first re-create a mount point
And now copy all the files from the original directory to the new one:
cp -a /home_orig/* /home
By now you should have the original content of /home availble. You can
remove /home_orig later
