I guess its time for me to create a topic
Anyway, i have a running linux server, using Gentoo. Its running on a 2.7 GB harddrive and as you can guess is running out of space. I am planning to put in another 10 Gb hardrive for additional storage. My question is: if i want to mount that new HD as a directory which already exists, what will happen to the data that is in that directory now?
if i go like this:
mount /dev/hdb1 /var/data/mysql
what will happen to everything in /var/data/mysql folder?
PS: Or, do i just mount it as a new directory and copy the data? I can definetely do that, but i am looking for a simpler way.
