Exclamation I need some help now, using Parted


HI, I need some help. I am having trouble with my computer, I want to resize a partition but I cant, I get the error message "can not resize , uncompatable feature enabled" or something like that. So I am thinking, can I delete the partition with parted and then create a new one in its place. And then to resize it without loosing data????

please reply as soon as possible!!!

If you will erase the partition and create a new one, why don't you create it in the new size, instead of resizing? Resizing is always troublesome and unrecommended...

I had thought of that, But I need to be sure that I will not loose data.
So my question is more pointed at the deleting/creating action, remember I a form of a newbie...

Well, deleting the partition will indeed erase all data on it...is that what you mean?
I don't understand.
