My computer has a relatively small hdd (80Gb), but I also just recently got a hdd enclosure for an old hdd, and it can hold 60Gb. I'm running out of room on my internal hdd (the 80Gb one), and so I decided I should move my system files to the external (the 60Gb one) and keep my /home on the internal, since it's the larger portion of all my files (50Gb out of ~75Gb).
I know there are ways to move your /home to a separate partition, but I don't think I can move system files because they're configured specifically for my internal hdd and such, and moving them would essentially break my install.
Is there a way to move my ubuntu installation to my external hdd, leaving my /home on my internal hdd? Or is doing a fresh install the best/only method for achieving this?
