Hi folks. Happy Halloween! I've been ''playing'' with my system, installing the 64 bit Ubuntu Studio 13.10 distribution, and have ended up with the following:
sda2 - ntfs, 181 GB
sda6 - ext4, 73 GB
sda7 - ntfs, 63 GB
sda2 is my Windows 7 Home Premium partition, working perfectly.
sda7 has no OS installed on it, and has been created because sda2 is getting full.
sda6 has UB Studio 13.10 installed, but I can only login as guest. I can Ctrl Alt 2 and login as alex, so I know my password is being entered correctly, but then startx doesn't work.
What I'd like to do, is copy all the contents of home/alex to sda7 then remove sda6, move sda7 so that it is next to sda2 and install UB13.10 from scratch.
So I figure I can login as guest, CTRL ALT 2, login as alex, mount sda7, and then use a single cli command to copy everything in my home partition to sda7, but I don't know what the commands to do this are.
I'm not looking to have my home partition on sda7, I just want to backup all my pics / videos /music / downloads so I can start again. I figured this would be easier than fixing the password issue.
Any help appreciated; thanks in advance, from Alex.
