Re: How to add another HD

I re-partitioned my hard disk a couple of weeks ago to make more room
to the /var/spool/squid partition. To keep my current cache contents I
just made a tape backup and the dumped it to the new /var/spool/squid
directory. Cache contents were preserved. You could also copy
the contents of the cache (cp -a /var/spool/squid/* /newsquiddirectory).

Hope this helps.
