YES, but I am stuck in the middle of the procedure and I am not sure how to continue and I am afraid to stop

4. How did you get this error? Are there any steps to procedure it?

I am sorry, this is not necessarily an error. It is a procedural issue with moving home folder from ssd to hd . I was following a video tutorial on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPJhUonbCKA&t=294s). I had just switched to a new laptop because the otherone failed. Instead of trying to recover my old data I started over. New machine has SSD with Win10, so I installed dual boot. I didnt understand the concept of using the ssd for the main os but using the hd for /home/. I booted the system with a live usb of parrot and tried to move /home/ that way but I had an issue that I can’t remember? But afetr watching the video I did a regular boot. My entire os was on the SSD. I started the procedure in video and I have made it as far:

sudo mv /home /home2
mv: cannot move ‘/home’ to ‘/home2’: Device or resource busy

I don’t know what to do and I am afraid to reboot in the middle of this because I don’t want issues, but since I just installed I can reinstall if necessary? I am stuck and need this machine today if possible. I am learning the system and Linux faster then I expected and I have only asked for help a few times. i usually find it myself and hate to ask because I know your time is as valuable, or more, then mine. Expedited help would be exponentially repaid , as I will be a valuable part of this community. I have servers set up with exploitable machines and I am going to start training kids to try to keep them out of trouble and give them the tools they need to have a successful career. Thanks for your time
