I previously had an Ubuntu/Windows dual boot, with
/ in the SSD and
/home in the HDD.
I decided to switch out Ubuntu for Fedora, and I made the mistake of not partitioning properly. It looks like
/home is now in the SSD and my previous
/home (and all the real data) is just in "Other Locations" (so basically a different partition).
Either way, what I would like to do now is the following:
- Should contain
/(and everything needed to boot).
- Should also contain
/home. Or at least as much as possible.
- Should contain
- Should contain the Windows partition (already taken care of).
- Should contain the
/homeoverflow from SSD. This should only get populated if the SSD runs out of space, at least ideally.
- The swap partition for fedora.
Is this possible? I don't see why it wouldn't be, but I'm not an expert by any means.
Also, I don't mind re-installing Fedora entirely and I actually prefer it since it'll probably be easier to partition and I haven't set up my settings/preferences in the latest install yet anyway.
Here's what I get when I run

- sda is the SSD.
- sdb is the HDD.
- sdb1, sdb3, sdb4, sdb5, sdb6 are all Windows partitions. Don't ask me why there are so many. Not sure if I did it or if Windows itself does it that way.
- sdb2 contains my previous
/homefrom when I had Ubuntu.
- sdc is just the USB which has the Fedora installer.
At the end of the day, I would like to make sdb2 part of
/home as well. And get the swap partition out of the SSD to avoid the wear and tear.
Furthermore, I don't mind manually copying files from sdb6 (old ubuntu
/home), if necessary, by the way. There aren't that many files.
Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks for the help!
