Help! Splitting 1 large partition into 3!
Well I've been trying to do this for a few days and been reading everything, but no success. My partition table is as follows:
1-> / - 6g
2-> swap - 500mb
3-> /backups - 20g
4-> /usr - 10g
5-> /home - 40g
I basically want to resize the backup partition to 16g and make two new 2 gig partitions. There is no data on this partition and right now its ext3, but could be converted to any file system.
I was successful in resizing the partition to 16g using resize2fs but for some reason fdisk still sees it as a single 20g partition. I can look at the size in nautilus and that says it is 16 gigs. So my question is, how can I create two new partitions after I have resized it?
I do have partition magic 8 on floppies saved from when I had windows, but it can't read my partition table for some reason and shows the entire hard drive as a raw unpartitioned disk.
