I have a Chromebook w/ Ubuntu on it and there is 5.1 gigs left of 16gb. I have a 32gb SD inserted. I would like to expand the internal storage to have more space on it.An sd card is usually found in an android phone or a camera.....may pc's have a slot to read an sd card.....how did you propose to combine them ?.....give details please.
I tried this & it didn't work. Anybody have any ideas on how to get it to work?There's a form of RAID that allows you to extend your partition onto a second hard drive, essentially making the 2 of them 1 drive. However, this wouldn't be suggested in your situation, because the read/write speeds of the 2 are dramatically different. You can move data onto the SD and mount it somewhere, like moving your /home contents to it and then mounting it as /home in the /etc/fstab. However, you could never take it out as you wouldn't be able to login without it or your computer session would become unstable if you removed it while logged in.
If you decide to do this, you need to boot to a USB drive, then move home, edit fstab, then reboot without the pen drive. Make sure your /home permissions are the same before and after the move or you won't be able to log in.
