Newbie Qubes user here… Just setting up my first Qubes system now, and want to know from the seasoned pros if this is possible…
I want to symlink an entire VM to an external drive.
The result I want is when I run the symlink script, all the read/writes to the VM are now read/written to/from the external hard drive, rather than the main drive.
The result I’m hoping for is creating a “ghost layer”… thats only visible if the external drive is attached, and symlinked.
I can imagine the script should look like this:
- Shut down the VM if running.
- Restart the VM.
- Attach the external drive to the VM
- Symlink the home folder.
Questions for the pros:
Will this work?
What unintended consequences might I face?
What top level VM directory do I need to symlink to get it to work?
