View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using existing "backup" partition as /home

August 17th, 2010, 05:54 AM
Hi everyone,
I currently have an existing partition that I used as a "backup", and I was wondering if I could mount it as /home and retain permissions. Should I move all my files from the root of the partition to $USER?
Also will Ubuntu re-write the folders for Documents, Downloads, etc.? Or am I safe just keeping my folder structure as it is?
