http://serverfault.com – In the following output of df -h you can see that i have added a new hard drive(/dev/hdd1) and have mounted as /hdd1. My question is if I start dumping data to /opt will that data be mounted in /hdd1 or / My goal is to utilise the new hdd1 instead of old disk(/dev/sda3). How can this be done? Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 442G 312G 12G 86% / tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda1 194M 57M 128M 31% /boot /dev/sdb1 1.7T 201M 2.6T 1% /hdd1 (HowTos)
