Production server / is only 50GB and it's full.

23GB is in /lib | /snapd 11GB /flatpak 7GB

I see the snap store is installing snaps to /var/lib/snapd | I have a second drive /dev/sdb that has 500GB of space available. sdb is a 500GB ssd .

Is it possible to tell the Snapstore to install snaps to /dev/sdb? or just move /lib to sdb? I was thinking something like

mount --rbind /var/lib/snapd/ /mnt/sdb/snapd/ |

I don't have proper backups in place atm

Open to any other solutions as well. Thanks for responses.
