In 13.10 (saucy), I followed the steps in both of these:
But run into an error when I get to recovery mode. While running as root:
~$ sudo su - ~$ cd / /$ sudo mv /home /old_home mv: cannot move '/home' to '/old_home': Read-only filesystem /$ chmod 777 /home chmod: changing permissions of '/home': Read-only filesystem
This also happens with and without
sudo su -. At the top of the recovery menu, it states, "Recovery Menu (filesystem state: read-only)".
How can I safely backup
/home while I migrate my home folder to a partition on another drive? Is there a better way?
I don't know what I'm missing, as I've done this process before without these issues.
