Is it possible to move a btrfs partition (after I shrinked it)? (e.g. as described in How can I safely resize (shrink) a BTRFS partition?)

I need this to grow the partition before the btrf partition.


If you have a GUI installed on the system in question, you can use gparted from the Ubuntu repositories:


According to GParted features page, it has move support for btrfs, provided btrfs-tools is installed.

If you don't have a GUI, you could just use the GParted Live CD:
