Fedora - resizing the partition


Hi,

I have Fedora and Windows installed on my PC. Now I have run out of space in Fedora. Could you please suggest how to extended the space.

Regards,
Swamy

This software booted from a cd will allow you to resize partitions. I have it on a usb stick.

It would be helpful if you posted your partition information and the version of windows. vista and win 7 may have these tools. I'd recommend Parted Magic, GParted to use. I went to the site linked above and found this under Limitations: Cannot resize FAT or EXT filesystems.

Since recent Fedora releases use ext4, ???

You should post output of
Quote:
fdisk -l
&
Quote:
df -h
low disk space may indicate that the / partition is almost full & you can get space from within fedora if you have seperate / & home.
Gparted-live-cd works well for an operation like that.

for resizing windows 7 USE THE WIN7 TOOLS BUILT INTO WIN7 !!!

now did you install fedora 15 using the default LVM ?
or a custom ext4 layout ?

@johnvv yes windows disk manager is the safer choice but it will only shrink partitin by 50% & if Op doesn't know how to select 25Gig out of 1TB & end up with 500G wins they will be well beyond grubs 125Gig limit.
I only say this from experience that most wins installers don't know that they can adjust the partition size during initial install, I was 1 of them, until introduction to linux. Gparted-live-cd can handle Ntfs also.
