Hi I'm new to the forums and Ubuntu.

I recently installed it on my EeePC 901, I know that this is a very limited system to be using it on, and I've been getting warnings from the OS when I started updating it, that my drive was running out of space.

Now my 901 has two tiny SSDs in it, one 4GB, one 16GB. The Smaller 4GB is somewhat faster than the 16GB, so I've used it to install Ubuntu onto, but as I mentioned, it's running out of space.

Could someone help me even out the load between the drives, like for example, by having all my documents and applications I install myself on the 16GB drive, while keeping the most essential OS parts on the 4GB drive.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

You will have to move /home to the bigger storage. Speed is not essential for /home, but space is.
