I need to move a 420GB unallocated space, buried in an extended partition, to the beginning of the disk.
Is there a way to do this using GParted?
Here is the current 'fdisk -l' snapshot:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0c85ac80 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 1992 16000708+ 83 Linux /dev/sda2 1993 60801 472383292+ 5 Extended /dev/sda5 1993 3984 16000708+ 83 Linux /dev/sda6 58810 60801 16000708+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
And in Gparted, it looks like this:
Unfortunately, when I select the unallocated space, the only operation available form the 'Partition' menu is 'New'.
Is it really impossible to move this partition?
If it is, how do I do this in Gparted?
