Topic: How do I get unallocated bit onto a partition?
Here's what I got:
1.partition 2.file system 3.size 4.used 5.unused 6.flag
/dev/sda1 ntfs 19.53gb 11.43gb 8.10gb boot
/dev/sda2 extended 200.98gb - - lba
>unallocated unallocated 17.28gb - - -
>/dev/sda5 ntfs 183.70gb 171.23gb 12.46gb -
unallocated unallocated 12.37gb - - -
Does this mean I have 3 partitions? I had thought I only had two. Anyways, I'm trying to get the first partition bigger. I've already got the 183gb partition moving over to the right so that the 17gb unallocated bit will be between it and the first partition. I should be able to resize the first partition after I do that, right? But what about the 12gb unallocated bit. How can I get that to be on the first partition? Do I delete it? Where will it go?
Also, what's the deal with the sda1,sda2,sda5? Does that matter? Should I be trying to end up with something like:
/dev/sda1 ntfs Xgb
/dev/sda2 ntfs Xgb
In other words, why is sda5 a subset of sda2? Can that be fixed, and/or should it?
Thanks so much!
