Topic: how does moving a partition work, chance of data corruption
my partitions look something like this:
EFI--UNALLOCATED SPACE--BTRFS LINUX--UNALLOCATED SPACE--SWAP
i need to move my linux to the left, so it's next to efi, and the unallocated space will merge. im not scared of breaking grub since i can fix it, i dont have any chance of power outage, so what is the chance of data corruption while moving, and why would data corruption occur?
I want it to look like that:
EFI--BTRFS LINUX--UNALLOCATED SPACE (merged from before)--SWAP
I can do that right now, since I've already got gparted liveusb ready, but knowing that my data can SOMEHOW corrupt (even if preventing power outage) is scary.
I also have a lot of free, unallocated space, my laptop doesn't overheat, and basically it wouldn't just turn off.
