comment Is it possible to mount a disk image, created with dd, to a directory on a mounted external usb hdd?
In the article I linked to they are doing resize2fs on the block device giving them problems. So in your case that would be the image file disk.img. You'd be resizing the filesystem within it, not the file itself or any other part of your system.

I've not seen this personally, but this page seems to describe a similar problem: linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/… Maybe you could try the resize2fs command? Do take a backup of the image file first though.

comment controling tmpfs memory usage
I'm sorry, I misread your question. I will severely edit my answer since it is currently mostly worse than useless. I don't at present know how to make it useful, unfortunately.

comment mounts not present in fstab. where are they?
What are you actually trying to do? Increase the size of the automatic tmpfs you get for /tmp? A writable /tmp is needed for lots of things so I can understand why it gives you a tmpfs for it if there isn't one already. /etc/fstab is far from the canonical place to list everything that will ever be mounted and has been for a long time.

comment How to Change Folder TimeStamp Recursively in Windows/Mac/Linux/Unix
You've indicated in the tags and title that you'd like a solution for unix, but your question implies you only want a solution for windows. Can you clarify please? Also, if I understand you correctly, any possible solution is going to be very slow as it will have to walk the entire directory structure to see if any file within has been modified. In Linux it may be possible to do something with inotify.

comment Trying to setup sudo user
@Rob, so what is the entire content of your sudoers file please? There must be an error it somewhere else or something else is wrong, as that syntax is definitely correct.
