[I split this out from the renaming drives in Windows thread. -JBI]
Ok, i think this thread is perfect,
I'm actually a new user running Linux Ubuntu.
Things to know:
I'm running ubuntu on a 10G HDD and a 500G external
I don't have money to go out and change the 10G problem.(my windows lappy was stolen, my brother made me this pc to help me get through school)
At first I was excited to learn linux, I use to build components, I understand how computers work, and basic programing. Yet I lacked the experience linux required and totally down to learn.
Everything I install, instals into the C drive. All my downloads and programs check there for space, and I can't get anything to run or finish installing because the OS drive is too small, although i have a big 500G external to use. Wine and Crossover are on the C drive. I can't get anything to go on the E drive manually. I tried the REGEDIT reccommended by kenobi and just switched C for E for program files, pictures, temp, (couldn't find Downloads).... Tried running the starcraft to instal exe on crossover, but now it's saying can't find directories. (it was semi installed at this point because it ran out of space, and now i don't know how to start from scratch). I don't have an issue mapping back to C since everything that has an E flags the needed canges, no biggie.
What Do I do?
I just want to have the OS on the 10G, and EVERYHTHING ELSE on the 500G.
This is ruining my linux experience in that i'm facing issues just running basics and more steps and problems than the compatibility part.
