Re: Resizing with gparted for Fedora installation

If you use gparted, it says that's a waste of time, since it moves what
it has to, itself.  Of course, I had to find that detail after watching
a PC spend hours defrag before I resized a partition.

I wonder if different defrag tools are more efficient?  I was staggered
at how slow Windows 2000 defragged itself, and it only had 2 or 3 gigs
that it had to defrag.  It took hours, whereas I could have just copied
files from one disc to another, if I had a spare one handy, much
quicker.
