I have a laptop I’m repurposing for umbrel. It has a 500G SSD and a 1TB HDD. I have Ubuntu 20.04 on it. I want everything but bitcoin core to be on the SSD, and have bitcoin core be on the HDD. I haven’t found a clear recommended way of doing this - only a few posts from around the web. My best guess at the process is:
- Install Umbrel to SSD
- Install bitcoin app and start downloading blockchain a little bit
- Stop Umbrel
- Move the umbrel bitcoin folder to the HDD
- Update some files in Umbrel to point to the new bitcoin path on the HDD
For step 4, I moved “~/umbrel/app-data/bitcoin” to “mnt/hdd/bitcoin”.
There’s a docker-compose.yml file in ~/umbrel/ but it doesn’t have a bitcoin section
There’s a docker-compose.yml file in /mnt/hdd/bitcoin/ but will changing that be enough for umbrel to know that it has moved?
When I installed Umbrel, I chose the default file path. Should I do something different instead? I’m happy to restart over completely, just want to figure out how to make this work.
