I'm an aged (over 30) OS enthusiast. Previously, as a developer in a small work group, I became the sysadmin by default since I was the only developer with a dozen users in a growing AIX environment.

Early Linux adopter, installing Slackware with 30+ floppies. I've installed most variants of Unix, Linux, Plan9, mkLinux, NeXtSTEP 486, BSD/386, NetBSD, FreeBSD, and I'm still waiting on HURD :)

Using Windows, I am limited by Windows. In Unix, I'm only limited by my knowledge of Unix.

comment Deleted /tmp accidently
/tmp doesn't need to have a partition, though it can be. /tmp can also be a filesystem of type tmpfs or ramfs keeping tmp files in memory. One needs to decide between ram or device depending on use, size of data, etc.

comment Point folder on main HDD to newly mounted 2nd HDD
Moving existing data, and then "pointing" a folder to a folder in the new disk are two operations. Make new folder, move existing data to new folder, then make old dir as symlink to new. Any app writing to existing folder will likely need to be paused or stopped and restarted as you will have to remove the existing directory to create the symlink.
