I used GParted to resize/move a partition on disk. The initial size was 50MB, but I shrunk my C:\ partition in windows, and then moved the start back 50GB
This shows up in parted
Model: ATA TOSHIBA MK5061GS (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 500GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 32.3kB 41.1MB 41.1MB primary fat16 2 41.9MB 830MB 789MB primary ntfs boot 3 830MB 394GB 393GB primary ntfs 4 394GB 500GB 106GB extended 5 446GB 447GB 107MB logical ext3 6 447GB 500GB 53.6GB logical lvm
So you can see that there is no gap between 3 and 4 here, which there would have been if I hadnt moved the partition, and expanded it from 50GB to 100GB.
however, when I do df -h
The logical volume still shows as 50GB (well, 40GB + 10GB swap), so I am not able to use that space.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 42G 28G 13G 69% / /dev/sda5 104M 28M 72M 28% /boot tmpfs 4.2G 0 4.2G 0% /dev/shm /dev/sdb1 985G 22G 913G 3% /media/disk
How do I fix this?
