I have a HHD which is actually a mess. I would like to organize it and exclude some partitions I don't want to use anymore. Positioning the HD partitions beautifully require moving entire partition to another part of the disk, giving me this information:
Moving a partition might cause your operating system to fail to boot.
You have queued an operation to move the start sector of partition /dev/sdb5. Failure to boot is most likely to occur if you move the GNU/Linux partition containing /boot, or if you move the Windows system partition C:. You can learn how to repair the boot configuration in the GParted FAQ. http://gparted.org/faq.php
Moving a partition might take a very long time to apply.
I'm currently running debian7 on a SSD /dev/sda, which is handling the boot. Is it safe to make all these operations? Is there any chance to lose data? Thanks
