How to save mail on separate partition
One thing i often end up doing is complete reinstallations of my distro.
I hate to loose my:
bookmarks for opera web browser
my mail: addressbook, filters, folders
I have tried solving this by having /home on a separate partition but i often screw up programs i add and need to wipe /home too.
So, I want to save my kmail and opera data on a separate partition of my fedora core 2 installation.
I tried this already. I manually configured an extra partition for it inside my /home/username/ but that installation didnt allow me to log in with a gui for more than half a second. (I could log in with a failsafe session).
So, how do i get this data somewhere safe? I left space on the hard drive so that i could add another partition.
Maybe it should be formatted as a vfat coz then (?) i could also send the data over to my windows box to back it up.
I hope to hear from you! :)
If their stored in a particular directory in your users home directory, just move them to another partition that you have available and then create symlinks from your home directory to the new directory.
