    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Hello, during a clean install, can we choose to put the / on a hard drive and the / home on another? My laptop has a ssd that I dedicate to the system and a hard drive sata that I reserve for the / home

Cool! So if I understand correctly, I can redo an install over the existing clean installation without losing my data?

Technically there's no reason to do a reinstall if all you're doing is to move a directory to a different partition. You're free to copy the files over to the new partition, and then edit the /etc/fstab file to point to the new location, remove the files on the current partition, and reboot.

Yes, it's true. I just wanted to know if it was possible. Thank you so much for your response so fast! ;-)
