move folder and mount partition as VAR

Or move folders to extra space and remount?

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/131311/moving-var-home-to-separate-partition

Well I tried moving var folder to new partition and edited fstab to say this

/dev/sda3	/usr		ext4    defaults	  0       0

But but I couldn't boot and ended up just starting from scratch and installed the non NOOBS version.

BUT, while getting out of the shower this morning I remembered that I forgot to make an empty new VAR folder for the new partition to be mounted into…Dang if it actually worked! it took a few reboots for the OS to adjust the file structure but on the third boot it all worked.

Still I went back to my new install, but it is good to know it works
