To change the location of the .minikube folder, you can do the following steps:

  1. Stop Minikube if it is running by running the command: minikube stop
  2. Move the existing .minikube folder to the desired location. For example, if you want to move it to /new/location/.minikube, you can run the command: mv ~/.minikube /new/location/.minikube
  3. Create a symbolic link from the new location to the original location. This ensures that Minikube can still find the .minikube folder at its original location. Run the following command to create the symbolic link: ln -s /new/location/.minikube ~/.minikube
  4. Restart Minikube: minikube start


Now, the .minikube folder will be located at the new location you specified.
