    root and home on different disks

    Hello

    I have an Asus UX32VD that has a 24 GB internal SSD and an 500 GB HD. I've install windows 7 on a 180 GB partition on the HD and then ubuntu 13.04 with the SSD working as the / mount location and the 320 GB working as the /home location.

    I installed steam and then some of my games: Killingfloor, Half-life 2 death match, HL2: Episode 2 and L4D 2. And the system just warned me that theres almost no space left on the HD as i installed the last of the games, and I wonder about that. Steam has installed the games under the default path: /home/"username"/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/"gamefolder"

    shouldn't they be on the 320 GB drive rather than the SSD then?

    if not, then how can i make it so?

    Thank yo for your time.

    of course:

    df -h
    Code:

    /dev/sda5       295G   54G  227G  20% /home
    and:

    sudo parted -l
