My computer is running windows 7 on a software raid1 (ntfs obviously) partition. I would like to reduce the size of the partition (currently the on whole disk) to install a raid0 (or 1 I don't know yet) with a linux distribution.
Is there any precaution to take before resizing (I know I need to back up precious data) with gparted ? Is gparted able to take the raid1 into account and resize it properly ? Otherwise, what is the procedure to still be able to boot on the windows partition (and preserve raid) ?
I can provide further details if required. Thans for any answer !
