I mounted my external disk to wrong directory (wanted it to be ~/bitcoinData) , instead ended up creating a directory on SD card ( /home/pi/bitcoinData ) and now SD card (root) is full. i cannot seem to delete SD card bitcoinData directory (permission denied). how do i fix this? and link hdd to correct directory?

    Pass -datadir=/path/to/folder/ in the command line when starting bitcoind. – Ugam Kamat Oct 4 '19 at 5:42
  • For a change in the directory, I agree with @UgamKamat but I think the problem not is correlated with bitcoin core but the permission user in your raspberry pi. try a command to the terminal with sudo rm -r path/bitcoin – vincenzopalazzo Oct 4 '19 at 9:11
