Hello all,
    I am using a cloud file hosting application called Owncloud, and they do not have much documentation on trying to move your data directory to a new destination (someone opened a ticket about it and they closed it, saying not enough people cared to do it). Someone replied to my forum post saying that using some standard Linux commands (Using Ubuntu 14.04), that this could be done, as long as only the data directory was move, and not the temporary directory.

    I added a 300gb ISCSI drive that is connected to a new NAS that we have implemented, so I am trying to see what the best way to go about this would be. The data is housed in /var/www/owncloud/data, my ISCSI drive is just in /docs If anyone could point me in the right direction on how to do this, I would be most appreciative.

Thanks!
