- How to resize partitions? 4 answers
I Want to Make my Swap partition bigger, I didn't know exactly what swap was until I looked it up, So I set my swap partition as only 100 megabytes, I then learned that that is positively puny compared to what is supposed to be there for my computers specs! So I have only used about 13 out of 300 gigabytes on my main partition. So I want to shrink my my main partition and enlarge my swap partition. Here is what I have already tried, I am Using Gparted if there is a partitioning tool that you would rather me use, please suggest it, but if it will do the exact same as Gparted, I would rather just stick with it,
- Open Gparted, and type in my administrator password
- Click on my main partition "/"
- Try to shrink, But wont let me shrink or enlarge
I have also tried deleting my swap then trying to enlarge my Main just to see if it will resize, but it still wont enlarge. Please Help!!
For the people who labeled my question duplicate: The question you labeled mine as a duplicate of does not address my problem, I specifically want to know how to resize my main and add to swap, not learn how to partition all together
