Hi. I have a question. I'm about to reinstall Arch to my system. I have a separate partition for the home folder and now that I'm reinstalling Arch again, I was wondering if there is a way to keep my home folder without having to format it during the reinstallation process. During installation, should I mount the partition as /home again? I'm a afraid this might format the partition. How do I get around this? Thank you.
no i don't think that's the case... in Arch's installation.. you partition the hard drive in "Partition Hard Drives" and then you use "Set Filesystem Mountpoints"... mounting and formatting seem to happen at the same time.
oh i figured it out..
during "Set Filsesystem Mountpoints" you can choose to not format a partition.
sorry I was being dumb. Thank you tho.
You can also re-install, and set your /home to the right partition later, by modifying /etc/fstab
