How do I uninstall one OS and keep my other one without losing my files and programs? I have Raspbian install as well as LibreELEC and the second OS is taking up storage and i want to delete it. I can't figure out how to delete it tho, because all I can find are articles on old Pis. Could I get some help?

or buy a 2nd sd card and install the new os onto it, your original os and sd card can be used on demand.

This is a very similar problem to a previous thread -> viewtopic.php?f=91&t=267592
