I've been struggling to find an answer for this, but it seems like there is no solid, well-documented answer for this.

How can I use mounted external drive for blockchain synchronization?

I installed bitcoin core in my ubuntu 16.04 by using ppa package,

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoind -y

and I mounted 200GB hard disk to synchronize all blockchain data.


I know the data directory will be made ~/.bitcoin

once i start synchronizing by typing bitcoind & in linux.

How could I possibly make it synchronizing to the mounted hard disk ?
