Unhappy problems with qtparted


qtparted will let me resize and move my swap partition but not my other ext3 partitions... is there anything i can do to resize these without having to reformat (because i do not have anywhere to backup my files at the moment)

Not quite sure what you're trying to achieve, or
whether the issue is actually qparted related, and
not a problem of the underlying actual tool ...

Look here:

Did you look at the table on parted's homepage?
Is the operation you're attempting (supposedly)
supported in it?

Are you trying to move the start cylinder while resizing?
It doesn't support that.

I'm posted this to a similar thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...=parted+resize

I think parted is having some issues with ext2/ext3 partition resizing. It should be able to resize the partition but can't:
