I'm posting this in the newbie forum, because I think that it's a simple question, and I am a newbie to Linux - therefore, it may just be something simple that I don't know about.
I have to ext3 partitions, each about 20 gigs. These are not boot, swap, or root partitions, just spare data partitions.
They have data on them, and are almost full.
I want to combine them into one partition, so that all the data is on the same partition.
If I had a spare 40 gigs on this drive, or another drive that had as much room, I would simply move the data there, and possibly back, depending on the situation, in order to workaround this.
Is it possible to join to Linux partitions into a single partition without destroying or risking the destruction of the data contained on them?
