Topic: [SOLVED] Newly enlarged FAT32 partition is shown as full
Ubuntu 6.06 up-to-date, external USB HD.
I just managed to resize a 40GB Fat32 partition after a bit of trouble (numerous sources state that for GParted to work, the volume has to be unmounted; but if I did so, it would not detect partitions and show the whole drive as unallocated).
So I deleted an old NTFS partition next to the one to be resized, created a new FAT32 one in its place (thought there was a 'merge' operation), deleted it again (had not been formatted), and resized the existing 40GB FAT32 to take up the 10GB of newly unallocated space.
So now I've got a 50GB partition which should have 10GB free space, but it doesn't.
Could someone explain to me what went wrong and how I can fix that?
Help and explanation greatly appreciated!
