relocate data

in my server , the path /usr is really full , I want to re-locate the data to other path to prevent the new data unable to write to it , but I do not affect the existing data location , would advise what I need to do is move some data from /usr to other path and set a symbolic link to the original path ? thanks

So what's stopping you do that?

  • Increase the size of your /usr partition if you've used LVM and have unallocated space.
  • Add a new disk and mount that as your /usr partition.
