I made a small home partition now I need more space.
So I thought I'll just make a new partition I can use. Saw what the user called gohlip said here
so I googled making a data partition. Only thing I saw was mentioning of /data here .
Not having found sufficient info I reckoned I'll try whatever.
Shrunk a Windows partition, 20 gb unallocated, started up Manjaro's live USB to run gparted from there (cause I first thought I could just expand the home partition). Formatted it to ext4, named it data and put the label /data.
Now, the partition is mounted but I can't add anything to it or create a folder etc.
I've seen in similar threads that the output of these 2 commands is often asked so:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda 8:0 0 465.8G 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 450M 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 100M 0 part /boot/efi
├─sda3 8:3 0 16M 0 part

/etc/fstab: static file system information.
Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
UUID=A2D5-CF74 /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 2

UUID=f0f7a027-3119-4337-a13e-40a05f0da529 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
I hope I haven't commited any of the major sins of posting a question on a linux forum.
I tried reading an arch wiki about adding new partitions to an existing system but honestly it goes over my head.
I reckon I made a mistake by putting the label /data since that looks like a mounting point thing.
