I guess we will just have to make it ourselves.

mkdir /popos

mount /dev/fedora_localhost-live/popos /popos

In the opening post of this thread, you mentioned wanting to keeo the data you had in the popOS
partitions on the other hard drive. Is this not the case?

It's waaaaaaay easier to to reformat it, and add it to your existing fedora volume group
if you don't care about any data on there.

Let's start over.

fdisk /dev/sda

press "g" to create a new partition table

press "w" to write this to the disk.

This will kick you out of fdisk and take you back to the system prompt.

Let me know when you get this far. You will have a nice new empty 950GB disk now.

Think of a directory name that you want to mount this hard drive under...
It should not have any spaces in the name.

What are you going to put on this hard drive?
Maybe name the directory something like car_pictures or favorite_songs
or anything. Maybe just something like extra_space.

So I think I wiped my disk, but that's okay nothing of value was on it but now I am booting again into a new Fedora with more storage. Thank you for helping me.

We still need to mount this disk before you can use it.

fdisk /dev/sda

press "N" to create a new partition.

It will ask a few questions, just press [enter] to answer the questions.

then press "w" to write this to the disk.

That will kick you out of fdisk again.

mkfs.xfs /dev/sda1

This will format your hard drive.

Let me know when you get this far.

Also, did you make a directory yet?

mkdir /taniks (or whatever you want it to be)
