My current 12.04 install is on a 750GiB SATA drive and I would like to smaller 480GiB SSD. I only have about 250GiB in use right now, along with an 8 GiB swap partition.
I regularly use Clonezilla, but understand that I would need to shrink my current drive first before cloning. I started down the road of doing this in gParted, but wasn't sure what to do about the swap partition, as as soon as I went to shrink the main partition, it left a huge hole in the drive.
What's simplest and safest way to do this? BTW, I have a recent clone of the whole drive done using the device to device Clonezilla method.
