No, but that is what I should have done .

I got it all mixed up with (GNU)parted(?), I meant him to change the size of his partition. But your way is cleaner ... I guess that's what distinguishes the Moderator from the Member .

Parted is not a bad idea either, I just prefer to start fresh with linux tools on my fresh drives. But parted might do the necessary things if there is data on the drive that cannot be wiped.
