I had a failing hard-drive so I cloned it with
dd to larger 500 GB HD. It seemed to have worked well, but I have all this unallocated free space at the end of the disk (230 GB).
I tried to used
gparted from a liveUSB to allocate all this space to my
root + home partitions (other than that I only have a small extended partition with the
swap). It won't let me do this. I can only create another partition, or allocate the free space to the extended partition. I can however reduce the size of the
root + home partition since I wasn't using all the space.
Is there a way to put this free space to my
root + home partition after all?
Or do I have to go with another partition. If so I'd like to separate my
home from the
root, reduce the
root partition and create a ext4 logical
home partition. What would be the best and safest way to do this?
