sdA 8gB disc space limited on eeePC and no access to 32 gB sdB
Am proud to report I managed to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my eeePC 1000H and carry out a number of post-install tweaks. All appears to be working fine.
My eeePC shows drives sda and sdb, approx. 8gB and 32gB respectively. I installed Ubuntu on sda and the larger drive, sdb is to all intents and purposes empty. This is where the issues begin...
1.) I am warned with a message window that space on sda is limited ie: 150mB remaining etc. The suggestion is to store files etc elsewhere. I have backed up on an external drive so in fact pretty much all that is on my netbook at the moment is the OS itself and my e-mail folders (using Evolution).
2.) I am unable to create folders or even to access the larger sdb, warned that I do not have priveliges to do so. So creating folders where I can store my files/data on sdb is not currently an option.
3.) My /home folder is on the smaller drive and I am guessing any document saved or any off-line accessible e-mail storage will happen somewhere on this smaller drive, using the limited space remaining.
I would appreciate advice on how to access - if possible - the second, larger drive on my eeePC. Ideally I would like to to learn:
1.) how to change the path for my Home folder, so that it is on the larger drive and;
2.) how to change the path for storage of my e-mail files on Evolution so that this is also on the larger drive.
Thanks in advance for advice and do let me know if more info is required.
