Change default storage location of docker containers on Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10

This was tested on Docker version 18.09.4, build d14af54266, it includes ALL docker data.

Just edit/create a file inside /etc/docker named daemon.json and add the following:

"data-root": "/new_location"

then simply restart docker:

sudo service docker restart
