On my laptop, I have Windows 8 installed (on the internal solid state drive). I have another external hard drive with an installation of Ubuntu (with the EFI,
/home, and swap partitions located on it).
All of my data is located on my internal drive, because I don't bring my hard drive around with me everywhere. Thus, my
/home folder (and all sub folders) don't really contain anything.
This isn't very major, but more of an inconvenience. To access any of my data, I have to manually select my internal drive, and go through a plethora of other folders. For example, most of my important data is located at
Of course, I can create symbolic links to get everywhere I want to, but it would be nice if I could simply change the
/home folder (to
my_user_name), my documents folder, etc.
Of course, I know I would have to make sure the internal drive always gets mounted first.
Is there a simple way to do this?
I think this might be the easiest way, but I'm not sure.
