SSD Partitions alignment on not-empty disk


Hi all,

I would like to fix partition alignment on my SSD disk, and I am curious if it is possible to do it without handling data from disk and back. Is it possible with Gparted?

Thank you for any help

mira

I think I'd be inclined to try ranish. I doubt anything can guarantee no data loss.

It looks like ranish is not developed for a while ... last stable release February 2001.
I am not sure if NTFS and EXT4 is supported.
