    Hi all, after uninstalling Mageia-6 from my laptop, I had installed openSUSE -42.3(Leap) successfully.
    I have three partitions FOR LINUX, openSUSE:--->

    /
    /home
    swap

    /home consists of various documents, videos, etc. in a separate partition of HDD.
    / also contains /home, partition and under it contains the folder say X
    /home in separate partition contains folder Y
    When I boot openSUSE, then a single /home contains both X and Y.
    MY POINT IS CAN I MERGE X AND Y TO A DIFFERENT FOLDER SAY Z
    If yes, how?
    Both folders and whole of system is under ext4 file system.

    @Desmond David, could you guide me brother?

    Actually, /home residing in separate partition, consists of files created during Mageia Linux OS.
    While installing openSUSE, I kept the /home partition untouched. Now a separate /home partition has been created within / partition in openSUSE.
    But when I invoke /home partition, then there are two folders containing files.
    One is folder X of default openSUSE and another is folder Y of /home partition of separate partition in HDD created during Mageia OS.
    CAN I MERGE THE FOLDERS X AND Y INSIDE /home partition?

    That was my question as given.

    Strange no GNU/Linux experts here at @TDF?
