Ok so this is the scenario.
I have a separate partition from my Ubuntu partition. I use this 500GB partition to store important data to keep it all in one place.
On the 500GB partition I have a MISC folder. Next to MISC I want to store my /home data from Ubuntu.
I've followed the official Ubuntu guide Partitioning/Home/Moving to store my /home on the partition containing MISC without problems and it works fine.
The only thing is that now somehow MISC is inside of /home in Ubuntu... Whereas I wanted them to be folders side-by-side on the partition. I'm not sure if I should have specified a longer directory path ie; /home/MISC2
It seems like moving /home to the partition, in this case sda5, has swallowed the entire partition. Also the partition no longer shows up as a separate drive in the Files app, next to computer, usb, and cd-drives as it used to when Ubuntu wasn't using it to store /home.
I hope it's not too confusing, any help would be appreciated!
I want this 500GB partition to act as an independent drive, without Ubuntu directory structures. I want it just as a place to store/backup data.
So maybe I shouldn't have mounted it via fstab for /home...??? Instead should I have used --bind or symlink?
