Hello,

Yes, you can mount your partition on /home, however, I would not go for /.

You can mount your block storage, to a specific directory by following the steps here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/volumes/how-to/mount/

You would just have to change the /mnt/example_mount_point to the directory that you want to use.

Also keep in mind that if you already have files at /home you would have to copy them over from the root partition to the block storage.

Hope that this helps.

Best,

Bobby
