Back of entire /home, make new /home

Recommended Posts

There are some games on steam that for some reason won't run with a xfs partition over 1 tb. Xfs can't be shrinked. What I want to do (possible without problems)?:


- Take a backup of the entire /home parition.

- Boot gparted and delete xfs paritition.

- Make new xfs partition under 1 tb, with the same /dev/sdXx.

- Just in case I cloned my entire system with clonezilla.

- Sysrescd, mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdxX.

- fstab filesystem entry for /home from xfs to ext4.

- copy all /home files back to new /home that replaced xfs partition.

- chown to fix permissions for entire /home/user.
