  1. Hi Osmario,

    First, make a new partition on your hard drive. You can use fdisk, gparted or GNOME disks for that.

    Then, mount the newly created partition on your computer and copy all the files on your /home directory to the new partition.

    Then, edit the /etc/fstab file and add an entry there for the hard drive partition to mount on /home automatically on boot.

    Then, restart your computer. Problem solved.


    Good luck.
