Moving bitcoin folder to other mounted drive

I have finished my installation for Umbrel and already installed bitcoin app. I realized that my current SSD is not sufficient for bitcoin full node installation and I have to move the blockchain data to other block storage. I have search for tutorial regarding this issue but i dont find any newer guide (latest version) of Umbrel. Can someone help me?

Copying/migrating the bitcoin blockchain download and moving directories to utilize multiple drives isn’t yet officially supported, but there are some steps going over that process here:

Sometimes if this can produce errors though, so if you haven’t synced a large percentage yet and want to get the new initial blockchain download going as soon as possible you can install Umbrel on a separate drive:

You can specify an installation of Umbrel on an external drive with this command to install Umbrel elsewhere: curl -L | bash -s -- --install-path path/to/external/drive

Replacing path/to/external/drive to the path of another storage device (preferably also an SSD)
