I'm currently having issues in creating a new partition within the Linux environment.
Currently, I've enrolled myself in the Security Tube Python Scripting Expert course, however when I created my VM on Virtual Box, I assigned only 8GB of disk space and forgot to change it.
Now, I'm currently sitting at 100% usage. I've currently assigned 40.83GiB of free unallocated space to the virtual disk space, however I've assigned it to the FAT32 File System instead of ext4 which currently has that 8GB of disk space (which currently holds all my Python course material.
The partition name for ext4 is - /dev/sda1. It's mount point is named as : /
I was wanting to see if I should do the following:
- Format the file system that I assigned to fat32 to ext4 so it's the same as the 7.5GiB
- From there unmount the 40.83GiB to the same mount point as /dev/sda1 which is the same as the 7.5GiB
I have asked a lot of people at work if they know how to carry out these tasks, they have said that I should run parted magic to doing any partitioning.
