Question

Attach volume to preexisting directory

Can volumes be attached to a preexisting directory?

Currently, I have 10GB volume in TOR1 and my server also being in TOR1 and I’m trying to add more space to my existing directory which is /home/srcds is there a way to attach the volume to that directory?

Hey friend!

Great question. The directory will need to be empty in order to mount it there, but this may not be so bad. This is basically what I would do:

mv /home/srcds /home/srcds2
mkdir /home/srcds
mount /dev/sda /home/srcds
mv /home/srcds2/* /home/srcds

So you’re moving it out of the way, creating the empty directory and mounting the disk there, then moving the files back over to that location.
