I have a dos partitioned drive.
partition 1 has windoze
there is no partition 2 (it was deleted and it's space added to partition 1,
using the old software called "Partition Magic".
partition 3 is fedora
partition 4 is fedora's swap.
Fedora partition is only using 3% of it's available space:
$ df -k /
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 903432024 24820728 832696536 3% /
$ df -k /sda1
/dev/sda1 42015740 41972804 42936 100% /sda1
Can parted handle
1. shrinking partition 3 (i.e. starts at a numerically higher block
2. fixing the installed grub so that I can still boot fedora,
or would I have to boot a live fedora and install grub from
3. adding the freed space to partition 1 so that windoze can
see it and use it as part of it's partition 1?
having recently converted a win7 laptop to a dual boot, i would suggest
you take time to pull "gparted" and forget about using older
you can pull latest release from;
do read the page and links to insure you are familiar with what you
wish to do.
P.S: I will be backing up sda3, so no fear there. Ditto with sda1.
