I have a small 128GB SSD. I run out of space when I install ReactNative related dev tools. So I wanted to find a way to install/move my existing distro to different location than C drive.
choco install lxrunoffline
lxrunoffline list List all the installed distros on your system. I get output like this.
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.207]
(c) 2020 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
lxrunoffline move -n Ubuntu-18.04 -d G:\wsl\ . Move your distro to another drive. My distro name here is
Ubuntu-18.04. I am moving it to
G drive and
wsl folder inside it. It would take some time to finish moving.
You can use the same move command to move your distro from default location to a different location inside C Drive.
